Scientific Interests

I am a climate scientist who studies the extent to which future climate changes can be predicted on time scales from weeks to years.  I often use multivariate statistics and stochastic turbulence models in my research.

Currently, I am a full professor in the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Earth Sciences at George Mason University, and a senior research scientist at the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies.  I currently serve as editor of Journal of Climate.

After completing my doctorate in 1993, I became a Global Change Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow for two years and a National Research Council Associate for two years at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  In 1997, I joined the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies.

I was a contributing author for chapter 10 (Detection and Attribution) and reviewer for chapter 11 (Near-term Climate Change: Projections and Predictability) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC AR5)
