Dr. Weston B Anderson

Postdoctoral Reasearch Scientist , International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) , The Earth Institute

BIOGRAPHY: I’m an agro-climatologist studying the dynamics of climate variability and its relation to food security using reanalysis products, remote sensing observations and model simulations. I’ve recently been working on how global-scale modes of climate variability pose a risk to major agricultural production regions. I am currently an Earth Institute Fellow working on climate and food security
