Timothy Merlis (B.S. Applied Mathematics, SEAS '06) will present a talk at the SEAS Colloquium in Climate Science (SCiCS).
He is an Associate Professor in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at McGill University and a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Atmospheric and Climate Dynamics. He is also a member of the McGill Space Institute.
Prof. Merlis' research is focused on climate dynamics including tropical meteorology, climate sensitivity, the ocean-atmosphere general circulation, and the atmospheric hydrological cycle. He aims to expose the physical mechanisms underlying changes in both past and future climates.
