Research Interests

  • Climate data analysis (from reanalysis, satellites, meteorological and hydrological station networks, and paleoclimate proxy archives)
  • Interactions between climatic systems
  • Abrupt transitions in climatic systems
  • Trend changes and distributional changes in climatic records
  • Nonlinear data analysis (complex networks, recurrence plots, uncertainties)
  • Statistical inference (inferring structure from noise, detecting hidden structure in data)
  • Unsupervised learning (data clustering, stochastic block models)
