Climate is an important driver of human activities at local to global scales. My research and teaching explore climate prediction and the impacts of climate variability and change on water resources and agriculture. I have active projects in the following areas: (1) Developing high-resolution future climate scenarios for the Northeast using global and regional climate models, statistically downscaled datasets, and weather generators, (2) Evaluating mid-century water availability for irrigation across the Central Valley of California and its potential effects on crop yields, (3) Analyzing uncertainty in regional climate simulations of the water cycle over the American Midwest, and (4) Modeling and quantifying the agricultural implications of climate extremes, such as droughts, floods, and heat waves, in Central America.
