Please join us for this important talk, with Q&A, by Deepti Singh, Ph.D. There is no charge for this online event but you’ll need to register in advance here: REGISTER HERE

The western U.S. has experienced several climate-driven extreme events in recent years ranging from record-breaking heat, drought, and intense flood-inducing rainfall. Such widespread extreme events have simultaneously affected a large geographic region affecting disaster management resources, an individual’s ability to avoid impacts, and various societal sectors. This talk will discuss observed trends in such extremes, their projections, and potential societal consequences.

Deepti is an assistant professor in the School of the Environment at Washington State University. Prior to joining WSU, she received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2015 and was a postdoctoral fellow at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University from 2015-2018. Her research aims to advance our understanding of climate hazards affecting vulnerable communities with the goal of providing actionable information for designing policies, risk-management, and adaptation planning. She studies the influence of human activities on weather and climate events occurring on local to global scales. Her research identifies the physical drivers of compound climate extremes and their impacts on agriculture, public health, and water resources using a combination of observations, paleoclimate evidence, remote sensing data, and global climate model simulations.

Deepti was recognized as a Kavli ‘Frontiers of Science’ Fellow by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences in 2015 and was named a Grist 50 Fixer in 2019.When not immersed in extremes, she dedicates her time towards climate change outreach with K-12 students and community groups, and efforts to increase diversity in STEM. She also enjoys swimming, bike rides, hiking, and volunteering with animal rescues.
