Bio: Ian works to provide decision-makers with quantitative, high-resolution projections of the socioeconomic impacts of climate change, focusing on damaging extreme events like tropical cyclones. His research blends dynamic modeling, large socio-environmental datasets, and emerging econometric and machine learning methods to quantify the complex interactions between society and a changing climate.At UC Berkeley, Ian has been a Berkeley Graduate Fellow, a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellow, and a NSF Research Trainee in the “Environment and Society: Data Sciences for the 21st Century” program. He holds MS degrees in both Civil and Environmental Engineering and Energy and Resources from UC Berkeley and received his BS in Applied Mathematics, with a focus on Earth and Planetary Science, from Harvard University.

Fields of Interest: Climate impacts, climate adaptation, climate extremes, tropical cyclones, remote sensing, water systems, snow hydrology, renewable energy
