Flavio is a climate scientist and Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University and also affiliated with the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Colorado. His interests range from seasonal to centennial climate variability, how it imprints on regional weather and climate, and how it influences our ability to detect and attribute changes in climate. He focuses on hydroclimate dynamics and large-scale atmospheric circulation.

Richard is a PhD student in Atmospheric Science.
HaoYu “Richard” Zhuang
HaoYu is an undergraduate student in Atmospheric Science and is working with Prof. Art DeGaetano and Flavio on using pattern recognition methods to identify atmospheric predictors of ice storms over the US in observations and climate model simulations.
Former group members
Josh was an undergraduate student in Geology and worked on a semester project quantifying the drought sensitivity of the Western US with respect to atmospheric ridging and associated precipitation and temperature anomalies.
Josh went on to start a PhD at Western Washington University.
Prospective Graduate Students
I am currently not looking for any graduate students, but if I am, you can apply via the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Feel free to reach out by email to let me know you’ve applied or to discuss common research interests.
I am currently looking for a postdoc to work on a NOAA-funded project to better understand and constrain runoff sensitivity in climate models.
Also, reach out if you are interested in applying for a postdoctoral fellowship to work together. Some potential funding sources for postdocs are the NOAA Global Change postdoc or different NSF postdocs.
