Areas of Interest:
* Climate change impacts and adaptation in agriculture and forestry
* Integrated assessment and economic modeling, primarily CGE and PE
* Land use cover and change modeling
* Large scale computation and ensemble simulation
I work on a variety of topics at the interface of global change, environmental, and social sciences through a variety of applied modeling and computational projects. I lead teams at the center for Robust Decision-making in Climate and Energy Policy (RDCEP) and in the Agricultural Modeling Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP; e.g. Ag-GRID). I currently run several projects designed to improve global change Vulnerability, Impact, and Adaptation (VIA) assessments and tools (primarily in agriculture and forestry) using large-scale high-resolution models enabled by high-performance computing. I also work on predictions of agricultural production at seasonal time scales, the effects of large-scale extreme events (such as droughts and heat waves), and with socio-economic modeling and scenario analysis in the context of integrated assessment models.
I received my PhD in high-energy theoretical particle physics from McGill University in 2008. I have been with the Computation Institute since Fall 2008.
