Research interests

My research focuses on dynamic atmospheric processes with a time scale longer than a week that influence medium- and extended-range, and seasonal predictions.

Current research topics:

  • atmospheric low-frequency variability
  • atmospheric predictability
  • numerical modelling and forecasting
  • tropical-extratropical interactions
  • air-sea interactions
