Kay Research Group
Polar climate change and variability
poorly observed polar regions
are changing rapidly and present many exciting research opportunities.
research interests include coupled
climate processes, cold clouds and precipitation, sea ice, climate
forcing and feedbacks, and internal climate variability. The tools
we apply include remote sensing observations, in situ observations,
process models, coupled climate models, instrument simulators, and data
work closely with scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR, also located in Boulder)
in the development and analysis of global coupled climate models.
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, a CIRES Fellow, and a co-chair of the CESM Polar Climate Working Group. Prior to coming to the University of Colorado at Boulder, I worked as a climate scientist in NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division.
Please be in touch if you are interested in joining us in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
