I am a Geosciences PhD major and Global Change minor working on issues related to climate, drought, and natural resources management. Jianjun Yin, a climate modeler, and Jonathan Overpeck, a paleoclimatologist, currently advise and mentor me. I am interested in monsoons, drought, water resources, climate change, and the connection between science and society. I study the frequency and duration of past droughts in the pre-instrumental period using lake sediment cores.
I am a PhD student in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment who focuses on ecology and rangeland management. My research centers on the patterns of biological soil crusts in the Sonoran and Chihuahuan deserts, techniques to monitor and assess biological crust communities, and the utility of soil crusts in restoration.
I am a doctoral student in the School of Natural Resources & the Environment and the Laboratory of Tree-ring Research, and majoring in Natural Resources--Watershed Management and minoring in Global Change. My research focus is forest ecology, more specifically on cross-scale analysis of tree growth as influenced by climate, topography, and disturbance history on scales from the individual tree to landscape-level species distributions.
I am an environmental scientist in the Department of Soil, Water & Environmental Science. My research involves studying the effects of vegetation canopy composition on water and wind erosion and contaminant transport to evaluate climate change effects on a long term vegetation cover in abandoned mine tailings in the U.S. southwest
I am an environmental scientist who is interested in interdisciplinary approaches to conservation and sustainability in arid regions. I have just finished my first year as a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Arizona in Tucson where I am majoring in Arid Lands Resource Sciences and minoring in Global Change. My research interests are at the Nexus of social and natural sciences mainly focusing on the human dimensions of natural resources and socioecological systems.
My name is Eileen Jeffrey Gutierrez and I am a student in the Entomology& Insect Science GIDP PhD program. My Global Change Minor is equipping me to study climate-associated changes in a mosquito's ability to transmit tropical disease.
I entered the PhD program at the University of Arizona in the fall of 2012 and began working with my adviser, Dr. Jianjun Yin. Through Department of Geosciences, I intend to receive my doctorate in the field of climatology and climate modeling as well as a minor in Global Change.
I am student in the Gradaute Interdisciplinary Program of Arid Lands Resource Science subscribed to the Minor of Global Change where I have found and excellent framework to analyze the importance of the human development footprint on the planet and the architecture along with its effect on global warming and energy consumption.
