Climate modeling and climate
Education: Ph.D., University of Maryland
Research Interests: I use combination of observations and global climate models to understand how water will both impact and be impacted by future climate change. This includes predicting future changes in water resources, river flow and temperature, permafrost, Arctic climate, and
climate in mountainous regions. Two recent projects involve the analysis of climate feedbacks in the Arctic region and in two high altitude regions--the Tibetan Plateau and the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado.
Another interest is on the impact of future changes in river flow and temperature on ecosystems, with a recent focus on the Fraser River salmon fishery in British Columbia. Related teaching activities include an upper-level course and a first-year seminar on climate change.
