I am a PhD candidate in the Program for Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at MIT. I am also a participant in the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. My supervisor is Paul O'Gorman. I hold a bachelor's degree in Physics from Trinity College Dublin and a master's degree in Applied Mathematics from Oxford University (University College).
My research interests span atmospheric dynamics, the hydrological cycle, and climate change. I currently study land-ocean contrasts in the climate system using theory and a variety of models (for details see the "Research" and "Publications" tabs, and my Google Scholar profile).
