Nick Lutsko

Postdoctoral Associate

Research Description

Nick Lutsko is a postdoctoral associate in the Cronin Group. Before coming to EAPS he completed his PhD at Princeton University, in their Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program, supervised by Prof Isaac Held. Lutsko says the main goal of his research is to improve our understanding of the atmosphere by connecting results from idealized models to the behavior of comprehensive climate models and to the observed behavior of the atmosphere. He is also interested in climate science more generally, including the problem of climate sensitivity, climate model development and evaluation, ocean heat uptake and climate variations on all time-scales.
