Team Leader and Supervisor of the Climate Physics Group. He is also a
Visiting Associate and a Lecturer in Environmental Science & Engineering at
Caltech. His research Interests are in turbulence, clouds and climate. He
uses a variety of models and observations to understand the interactions
between the climate system and small-scale processes, such as turbulence,
convection and clouds - to improve climate prediction. He was recently
awarded the NASA Exceptional Achievement Medal.
