Northeast Region Climate Change Assessment for the Next 100 years: Impacts, Mitigation, and Adaptation

Srinath Krishnan 2014-2016
Srinath’s post-doctoral research is focused on producing stakeholder-specific high-resolution climate projections for the New England region. He received his B.E. degree in Computer Science from University of Madras, India in 2004 and M.S. in Atmospheric Chemistry from North Carolina State University in 2007. During his Ph.D. at...

Using multidisciplinary complex systems methodologies to better understand the linkages between water, health and climate change in developing countries.

Jonathan Mellor 2013-2015

Jonathan Mellor uses multidisciplinary complex systems methodologies to better understand the linkages between water and health in developing world countries.  A Virginia native, he took this approach for his doctoral research working under Prof. James Smith at the University of Virginia to better understand how household drinking water...

Studying the ecological roles of top predators and the impacts of climate change on predator-prey interactions and ecosystem dynamics

Adam Rosenblatt 2013-2015

I study the effects of climate change on animals, the interactions they have with each other and plants, and the cascading impacts of climate change on humans and how we live. This research is important because the climate is changing rapidly and we need to understand how ecosystems will respond so that we can adapt to the new...

Belowground biotic interactions and how they respond to, and influence climate change via climate-ecosystem carbon feedbacks.

Thomas Crowther 2012-2014

My research interests include soil, ecosystem and climate change ecology. Specifically, my work focuses on biotic interactions and how they respond to, and influence climate change via climate-ecosystem carbon feedbacks. My PhD work, conducted at Cardiff University, centered on the topic of soil biodiversity. This work advanced our...

Mining the written history of medieval Ireland for connections to human violence and climate change.

Francis Ludlow 2012-2014

Francis Ludlow is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Yale Climate & Energy Institute, where he works with Prof. Benedict Kiernan of the Department of History and Prof. Michael R. Dove of the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies, on a project entitled...

Linking global species distributions and remote sensing data for climate change research

Adam Wilson 2012-2014

Global insights into the magnitude of the biotic response to climatic change are desperately needed. It is therefore imperative to make full use of all available biodiversity distribution data over the broadest possible spatial and temporal extents. Earlier efforts at linking climate variability and changes to biological responses suffer from a...

Studying interaction of atmospheric dynamics and surface dryness in the subtropics

Xavier Levine 2012-2014

Dry regions, where evaporation and evapotranspiration exceeds precipitation in the annual mean, cover about 40% of Earth’s land surface and affect the livelihood of nearly 2 billion people, primarily in developing countries. Drought intensity and frequency may have increased in many dry zones of the subtropics over the past 30 years, and...
