I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the department.  My research interests include computational and geophysical fluid dynamics, climate variability, and prediction. I am advised by Dr. Sarah Larson, assistant professor of the MEAS department at NC State. Prior to joining NC State, I completed my bachelor’s and master’s in mechanical engineering with a background in computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

Area(s) of Expertise

My current research is focusing on intrinsic air sea interaction to large scale sea surface temperature variability in climate change scenario. It demands genuine understanding of the individual air-sea processes that are responsible for the regional and global SST variability. In order to examine individual components, earth system models are used and modified and later supported through numerous hypotheses.
Apart from current research, I also have keen interests in using ML and AI in climate predictions.
