Description of Research: 

It is widely accepted that the land surface exerts a control on atmospheric processes on multiple spatial and temporal scales. However, the complexities of land-atmosphere interactions are not yet completely understood. My research strives to elucidate the connection between the land surface and large-scale atmospheric circulation patterns in southeastern South America. I use an idealized global atmospheric circulation model to simulate the response of the atmosphere to anomalous heating associated with spatial variations in the land surface.
