Research Interests

  • Processes associated with climate change in middle and high latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere
  • Assessment of global coupled climate models (CMIP3 and CMIP5)
  • Detection and attribution of climate change
  • Sea Ice projection/predictions
  • Impacts of climate change on North Pacific (including the Bering Sea) and Arctic ecosystems

Current Research Projects

  • Arctic Change Detection
  • Synthesis study of the Bering Sea - EcoFOCI
  • Changing Seasonality of the Arctic Ocean (co-PI)
  • Coupled Climate Model assessment and sea ice projections
  • Sea ice simulation and prediction over the Chukchi Sea
