Aaaack, I’ve got an empty nest after Kevin and Aman graduated last fall! PhD student positions are open. Stay tuned for some possible postdoctoral scientist positions in the works, too.
Postdoctoral Research Scientists
Aman Gupta (PhD, 2020) explored the impact of model numerics on the transport in atmospheric models. His thesis showed that there remain significant differences in stratosphere-troposphere coupling and tracer transport between the behavior of state-of-the-art dynamical cores. Aman traveled a bit farther afield for his postdoc, joining Thomas Birner’s group at LMU Munich!
Kevin DallaSanta (PhD, 2019) investigated the large scale circulation of the atmosphere. First, he investigated the tropospheric circulation response to volcanic eruptions, using a hierarchy of models to probe the mechanism. Second, he explored zonally coherent variability in the tropical atmosphere, discovering downward propagating anomalies on subseasonal time scales. He’s now a Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA GISS, just a few miles uptown!
Naftali Cohen (PhD, 2014) investigated the overturning circulation of the stratosphere and interactions between the resolved circulation and parameterized gravity waves in atmospheric models. He’s since shifted in data science and is working in industry (JP Morgan Chase, last time I checked!)
Xichen Li (PhD, 2014) focused on teleconnections between the the tropical oceans and the circulation around Antarctica, with a particular focus on links between the tropical Atlantic and Admunsen Sea. He’s now at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing.
