Research interests

Dynamical systems and its applications
Low-order climate modeling

In recent years I have become interested in mathematical modeling of climate. The focus is on conceptual, or low order models, in which the influence of major climate components such as incoming solar radiation and albedo is studied. This research has been supported by the Mathematics and Climate Research Network. I have also been influenced by the dynamical systems approach to climate modeling advanced by Dick McGehee in his seminar Mathematics of Climate. Here is more info from an interview given a few years ago.
