Improving our understanding of Earth’s hydroclimate over the past century to millennium is critical to better characterizing and predicting hydroclimate change in the coming decades. Towards that end, I research extratropical hydroclimate and its downstream impacts over the Common Era using a combination of observational data, high-resolution paleo-proxies, and state-of-the art climate models. The arc of my research spans (i) hydroclimate extremes in relation to climate variability and/or change, (ii) mechanisms of climate variability affecting hydroclimate, and (iii) downstream impacts of hydroclimate on climate change adaptation and mitigation.
