Our fearless leader. Assistant Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at the University at Albany.
I joined DAES in Fall 2013. Previously I was a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Washington, hosted by David S. Battisti. I completed my PhD in 2010 in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate at MIT. My thesis advisor was John Marshall. I first came to UW as a visiting scholar under the NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Howdy!! My name is Cameron Rencurrel and I am a PHD student in the Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at SUNY Albany. Coming from Lake Jackson, TX, I graduated from Texas A&M University in the spring of 2014 with a B.S. in Meteorology and minors in both Mathematics and Oceanography and have been working with Dr. Brian Rose since the fall of 2014. My research interests include climate dynamics, paleoclimate, and ocean/atmosphere interactions in our climate system. In general, I am fascinated with understanding how and why a system as complex as our climate has varied over time. Presently, I am looking into how the atmosphere compensates for variations in tropical ocean heat transport in an attempt to understand what has driven climate change in the past.

Cameron completed his MS thesis in February 2017, entitled ``Understanding Climatic Adjustments to Variations in Tropical Ocean Heat Transport". He is continuing as a PhD student.
Our newest group member, recently graduated from the Atmospheric Sciences program right here at U. Albany. Chris is studying mechanisms of energy transport into the Arctic and how they vary with (and contribute to) climate change.
