In Oxford, I act as Undergraduate Tutor for 1st and 3rd year Physics (Wadham College), Undergraduate Lecturer in Physics (Physics of the Oceans & Atmospheres), Graduate Lecturer in the Doctoral Training Programme (Climate Dynamics; Advanced Quantitative Tools).


– I will be joining New York University as faculty at the Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science in the fall 2019. I therefore won’t be accepting new PhD/DPhil or Postdoc applicants to Oxford at this time.

New opportunities for postdocs or researchers to join me at NYU/Courant: If you are interested in working on combining climate dynamics and machine learning, apply here. The topic of research is flexible. Feel free to contact me at if you have any questions. Note that only applications submitted in full via Interfolio will be considered.

– I am also accepting possible PhD students through the NYU CAOS graduate program, and applicants for the following fellowships: James S. McDonnell, NSF Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences, NSF Earth Sciences, NOAA Climate & Global Change, NYU Courant instructors. Be in touch at if you are thinking of applying.
