Dr. Stan research interests center on climate modeling with a focus on the large-scale dynamics and predictability of tropical variability. Specific topics include the role of cloud representation in modeling the tropical cyclone activity, monsoon circulations, Madden-Julian Oscillation, and ENSO under current conditions and future climate change scenarios. She is also involved in the development of coupled climate models using super-parameterization for representing cloud-scale processes.
