Graduate Research Assistant
Nathan Lenssen (he/him) is a graduate research fellow in climate sciences at IRI and a Ph.D. student in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Columbia University. Nathan works with Lisa Goddard and Simon Mason on a variety of climate variability and predictability questions. He is interested in how observed ENSO behavior can be used to improve our quantification of seasonal forecast skill. In addition, he is studying how better quantification of climate variability can lead to more skillful prediction on seasonal-to-decadal timescales.
