Dr. Katie Dagon is a project scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, working in the Climate and Global Dynamics Laboratory. Her research focuses on modeling the impacts of climate change on land-atmosphere interactions and climate variability. She applies machine learning approaches to climate data to detect extreme weather events, understand climate predictions, and quantify uncertainty in model projections of climate change. From 2017-2019 she was an Advanced Study Program postdoctoral fellow at NCAR. Katie obtained her Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University in 2017 and her B.S. in Mathematics-Physics from Brown University in 2010.
