I am a Research Scientist working with the Barnes Research Group at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, Colorado. My research broadly focuses on advancing Earth system predictability via blending climate and data science techniques to understand climate variability and change. I use explainable machine learning techniques to study sources of subseasonal to decadal predictability to identify forecast opportunities. I am a member of the US CLIVAR Working Group on Climate Data and Predictions for Coastal Solutions. I am also involved in a number of science communication and outreach organizations to promote accessible and actionable science including the American Meteorological Society's Board on Representation, Accessibility, Inclusion, and Diversity (BRAID) and work to engage the public on topics such as climate change, sea level rise, and hurricane preparedness.
