Interests: Atmospheric Sciences, Climate Variability, State Climatologist

Current Research: Research focuses on U.S. and Arctic climate variability of the last century. It seeks causes of the century long climatic cooling over the Southeastern United States and the national diurnal temperature range decline. The Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation's role in Arctic climate and summertime Beaufort Sea ice declines is also explored.
