I am aromantic and asexual and I am an applied math/atmospheric science PhD student. //

I’m a graduate student in applied mathematics at Columbia University. I study factors affecting the North Atlantic Oscillation, a key driver of European seasonal climate. I’m especially interested in the influence of the stratosphere on European weather and climate and how events in the stratosphere interact with other climate phenomena. My favorite parts of living in New York City are getting to see an inordinate amount of dance performances and being able to take classes in many dance forms, but I also appreciate the active ace and aro communities here.
