About me

I am a versatile physicist, computational scientist and software engineer:

  • I am a research lead at Google on the Applied Sciences team, where I focus on the potential of deep learning for scientific computing such as climate & weather modeling.
  • I am also a leader in the open source software community for scientific computing in Python (e.g., Xarray, NumPy and JAX).

I have a Ph.D at UC Berkeley and a B.A. at from Swarthmore College, both in physics.

You can find my hot takes on Twitter, my code on GitHub and my papers on Google Scholar.


I live in San Francisco, California. Reach me by email at or
