Big whorls have little whorls, Which feed on their velocity
And little whorls have lesser whorls, And so on to viscosity.

Postdoctoral Scientist at NASA GSFC
I like working with numerical models and topics related to Atmospheric Physics. I enjoy using programming tools to analyze big data and finding patterns. My research interest includes but is not limited to large-scale atmospheric circulation, seasonal to decadal variations in large-scale atmospheric properties, and climate response to forcing from anthropogenic and natural sources. I have graduated with a Ph.D. in Climate Dynamics from George Mason University in Fall 2020 and joined NASA GSFC at Global Modeling and Assimilation office in December 2020.
My Current research at NASA includes: Air-Sea-Ice interaction, Climate model development, High resolution climate modeling, Annual to decadal climate prediction. My current project at Goddard focuses on satellite data assimilation with NASA GEOS and MITgcm model to improve annual to decadal climate projection, collaborated with MIT, NASA JPL, and UT at Austin.
Tools I use/used in my research- Programming Language: Python, MATLAB, R, NCL, GrADS, SQL, Latex, C, bash scripting. Machine Learning: Scikit-learn, Deep Learning, Keras, Tensorflow, RNN (LSTM, GRU), kNN. Models: CESM, WRF, Herwig ++, GIS.
