How do scientists know what they know?–this is the question that I aim to answer throughout my research. Specifically, I look at how climate scientists use computational methods, numerical modeling, and big data to learn about climate change. I've written on inductive inference in machine learning and the logic of research questions in dendroclimatology. My current research focuses on explainable AI in climate science.
