Jake is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. His work on solar geoengineering in the Keith group focuses on using simple climate models to assess the effects of spectrally and meridionally tuning geoengineering interventions. Previously, Jake worked on a variety of radiative-convective phenomena, including the physics of carbon dioxide radiative forcing, anvil cloud formation, and the effect of global warming on lightning and severe thunderstorms; currently, Jake is pursuing these interests with Associate Professor Robin Wordsworth by studying moist convection in very warm climates, such as will be found on Earth in approximately 1 billion years when the sun is about 10% brighter. He received his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in 2018.
