Nonlinear climate dynamics:An important research theme in our group is understanding
monsoons from a dynamical systems perspective, using techniques in nonlinear dynamics, model-reduction,
and time-series analysis.
Statistical methods in climate: We work on development and application of statistical methods, with
ongoing work in spatial statistics, renewable energy integration, and learning directed graphs from data
to understand climate teleconnections.
Climate change economics and policy: Related to global warming, we have studied origins of path
independence between cumulative CO2 emissions and global warming and comparing mitigation of different
climate forcers having different atmospheric lifetimes. We have integrated simple climate modeling and
economics to study mitigation, and are collaborating on economics of climate change.
