Samantha Stevenson

Assistant Professor (Climate Modeling, Drought, Oceanography, Climate Dynamics)
My research goals relate to understanding how large-scale climate variability responds to changes in climate, how we can improve our inferences of those changes using paleoclimate archives, and using that information to improve the representation of climate variability in climate models. During my PhD work I focused on the response of the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO) to climate change; since then my work has focused on developing new techniques for identifying past ENSO changes using coral paleoclimate records, and separating ENSO-driven impacts on hydroclimate from internal atmospheric variability and external changes to the climate.
