Brief Biography

Most of my research is focused on climate change including:

-climate processes in middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere

-impacts of climate change on ecosystems in the Pacific basin (including the Bering Sea) and Arctic

-components of Arctic climate system and their interactions among each other

-assessment of global coupled atmosphere-ocean climate models

-detection and attribution of climate change

Current research projects include BSIERP/BEST (Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research/Bering Ecosystem Study), Arctic Change Detection, Synthesis study of the Bering Sea - EcoFOCI, and Changing Seasonality of the Arctic Ocean (co-PI).
