Erica M. Staehling

Ph.D. candidate, Princeton University, Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences


About Me:

I am a third year graduate student in Princeton's AOS Program, and my advisor is Isaac Held. I am interested in fundamental problems in geophysical fluid dynamics with relevance to large-scale atmospheric circulation and climate change.
