Assistant professor, UCLA
I am interested in understanding planetary phenomena. My current research is focused on understanding surface-atmosphere interactions on Titan, superrotating atmospheres, tidal interactions of synchronous satellites, and Earth's paleoclimate. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Earth & Space Sciences and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UCLA.
