I am a Ph.D student in applied mathematics pursuing a doctoral minor in statistics. I am working with Prof. Richard McGehee on problems arising in dynamical systems of the planet earth. I am particularly interested in the following topics:

- Modeling long-term behaviors of Earth's climate given the data on its prior states
- Model validation of existing climate models for strengths/weaknesses
- Extending model structure to a larger data set

My resume can be found above, next to my name, or here.

I am currently looking for full-time opportunities in data science.
