My primary areas of research are in climate variability and change, particularly with respect to the Arctic region. My work involves analysis of atmospheric and ocean dynamics, satellite remote sensing, synoptic climatology, and analysis of output from numerical weather prediction models, land surface models and coupled global climate models. I also have very strong interests and activities in science education and communication to the media and public. My new book, 'Brave New Arctic: The Untold Story of the Melting North North', is the latest example of these efforts.
