Daniel Vimont's research focuses on three major themes: mechanisms of climate variability and change, interactions between weather and climate, and global and regional impacts of climate change. Much of Vimont's work utilizes observational analyses, model-based experiments, and theoretical analyses to investigate these themes. Vimont's current research focuses on coupled ocean atmosphere interactions and their contribution to tropical Pacific and Atlantic variability, subseasonal-to-seasonal (S2S) predictability, statistical downscaling for regional climate, and development and application of statistical models for understanding climate variability.
