I am a Research Scientist at the Center for Environmental Sensing and Modeling (CENSAM), part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART). Before moving to Singapore, I completed my DPhil (PhD) in Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics, working as part of the Climate Processes group at the University of Oxford.
My research interests include global climate modeling and climate processes, particularly aerosol effects on climate. I am currently producing an ensemble of global climate model projections, with a particular focus on South-East Asia. Much of my other research has focused on explaining observed correlations between aerosol pollution (responsible for haze/smog) and clouds. Clouds are highly complex, so establishing causality between these observed correlations is a difficult problem. I look at the complex system in new ways, seeking to disentangle what is understandable. I enjoy working alongside others in the search for original solutions to difficult problems.
