Dr. Kevin Anchukaitis serves as Chair of the Global Change GIDP, teaches the Global Change core coure, and facilitates the Global Change Toolkit core course. He is paleoclimatologist, dendrochronologist, and earth systems geographer specializing in the reconstruction and analysis of climate variability and change over the Common Era and the interaction between past climate and human society. His research uses an array of techniques to develop and interpret evidence for past, present, and future climate dynamics across a range of temporal and spatial scales, from local to global and interannual to millennial. These include dendroclimatology, climate field reconstruction and spatiotemporal data analysis, stable isotopes, proxy systems modeling, and the integration of paleoclimate data with General Circulation Modeling.
Dr. Anchukaitis holds joint appointments in the School of Geography and Development, Department of Geosciences, the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Global Change, and the Laboratory of Tree Ring Research.
