I joined the division of Earth and Ocean Sciences in the Nicholas School as a PhD student in the fall of 2014, working with Prof. D. Shindell. My PhD project explores the climate response to individual climate forcings, such as greenhouse gases, aerosols and solar insolation by using the output from the Precipitation Driver and Response Model Inter-comparison Project (PDRMIP) models. I am currently working on regional temperature and precipitation responses to these drivers, as well as comparison of global effective radiative forcing diagnosed from these models.
