Erin Thomas recently defended her PhD study. Her research focuses on understanding the complex interactions between El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and numerous oceanic and atmospheric phenomena. These phenomena complicate our understanding of the mechanisms responsible for generating ENSO diversity and make it very difficult to predict ENSO events. Her research utilizes statistical and physical modeling to identify both observationally-grounded and physically meaningful mechanisms that influence the development of ENSO events.
