  • 2021-02-22 - New paper on vertical structure of poleward energy flux

    PhD student Chris Cardinale leads this new paper “Stratospheric and Tropospheric Flux Contributions to the Polar Cap Energy Budgets”, now accepted in Journal of Climate.

    In this, Chris’s first peer-reviewed publication, we look at the detailed temporal and vertical structure of the poleward fluxes of moist static energy using the NASA-MERRA-2 reanalysis. We are interested in separating the effects of stratospheric and tropospheric circulations on the total poleward energy transport, as well as the differing impacts of these circulations on the energy budget of the polar regions.

  • 2020-10-19 - Two new PhD positions available!

    I’m happy to announce that I will be recruiting two new graduate students for fully funded PhD positions in my group starting Fall 2021. Both projects are funded on new grants from the National Science Foundation, involve exciting opportunities for cutting edge science and interdisciplinary training, and will result in significant contributions back to the open-source scientific software community.

    Details about both opportunities follow.

  • 2020-10-16 - New website!

    Hello world! Welcome to the latest refresh of my website!

    This Sphinx-based redesign was inspired by this blog post by Chris Holdgraf. Thanks Chris for all you do to keep the Python-based open-source community moving forward!

    Hello world, I got some good news today: promotion to Associate Professor with tenure.

  • 2018-10-03 - Public talk about climate sensitivity

    Brian gave a science talk at a bar!

    “Climate Sensitivity in an Uncertain World” occurred on the evening of October 2, 2018 at Slidin’ Dirty in Schenectady NY. This was a special Science on Tap event coinciding with the MiSci Science Festival.
