Climate Change & Impact

Climate change remains one of the most pressing challenges of our time, with far-reaching impacts on various aspects of the Earth’s environment and human society. My research is in understanding these impacts through the lens of advanced climate modeling. I utilize Global Climate Models (GCMs) as a primary tool to project future climate conditions, offering vital insights into the long-term effects of climate change.

One of the key elements of my research is the application of downscaling methods to GCM outputs. This approach refines the coarse-resolution data provided by GCMs, making it more relevant and applicable to specific regions.

Beyond the environmental implications, I am particularly focused on the socio-economic aspects of climate change. This includes assessing the exposure of different populations to the changing climate and its related hazards. By integrating demographic and socio-economic data, my research aims to identify vulnerable communities and understand the varied impacts of climate change on diverse population groups.

Public health is another significant aspect of my study. The intersection of climate change and health is complex and multifaceted. I explore how future climate conditions might influence public health outcomes, including the spread of diseases, temperature-related illnesses, and the overall well-being of communities.

Energy systems are also at the forefront of my research. The shift towards renewable energy sources in response to climate change is a critical transition. My work involves projecting future energy demands and the viability of different energy sources in the changing climate. This aspect of research not only contributes to the sustainability discourse but also informs policy and investment decisions in the energy sector.
