I use a mixture of data-based techniques (econometrics, pattern-recognition, detection-attribution) to identify aspects of climate which are:

a) important for societal outcomes such as economic growth

and/or

b) changing as a consequence of anthropogenic forcing. 

The end goal is to improve our assessments of the costs of climate change, and consequently to update policy-relevant information such as the Social Cost of Carbon.
