YCEI Speaker Series
Each academic year, the Yale Climate and Energy Institute organizes a series of lectures by visiting experts on a broad range of topics in climate and energy. Presentations for the coming year include:
12/07/2015 - 4:00pm | Global Change Biology: Impacts on plants & animals, Marta Jarzyna, EEB
12/08/2015 - 12:00pm | Climate change: Impacts on functional roles of species in ecosystems, Adam Rosenblatt, EEB
Adam Rosenblatt, a former YCEI fellow, is currently a postdoctoral research associate in the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies. His research focuses on 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.
01/18/2016 - 4:00pm | High Resolution Climate Models: Predicting Lyme disease in New England, Srinath Krishnan, G&G
Srinath is a YCEI postdoctoral fellow for 2014-2016. His current work focuses on evaluating the impact of climate change on the Northeast United States for the next 50 to 100 years, using high-resolution projections that can be obtained by dynamically downscaling the global Community Earth System Model (CESM) using the Weather and Research Forecasting model (run at the scale of 4 km by 4 km).
01/19/2016 - 12:00pm | Occupational heat stress, Robert Dubrow, Yale School of Public Health
Robert Dubrow, Yale School of Public Health
Robert Dubrow is Professor of Epidemiology (Chronic Diseases) in the Department of Epidemiology & Public Health in the Yale School of Medicine. He is the principal investigator for a new Yale School of Public Health Initiative on Climate Change and Health, which aims to create a cohort of leaders dedicated to addressing climate change and health, to establish an educational program on climate change and health for students across the University, and to catalyze research on climate change and health utilizing Yale’s multidisciplinary expertise to generate innovative interventions and pol
