- Name: Aubrey Miller
- Organization: National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Aubrey K. Miller, M.D., M.P.H., Captain in the USPHS, is currently Senior Medical Advisor for the Director of the NIH, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), where he leads legislative, policy, and environmental health related programs and activities in coordination with other government, academic, and public stakeholders. He has longstanding experience, publications, presentations, and contributions to a wide variety of occupational & environmental health issues, including asbestos, disaster research, and numerous emergency responses across the U.S. His career includes notable public health positions with U.S. federal agencies including the FDA, EPA, and CDC.
- Name: Claire Horwell
- Organization: Durham University
- Email: email@example.com
Dr Claire Horwell, PhD is an Associate Professor (Reader) in the Department of Earth Sciences at Durham University. She is the founder/director of the International Volcanic Health Hazard Network, the umbrella organisation for volcanic health research and dissemination. She has acted as advisor to the World Health Organization, Public Health England (formerly the Health Protection Agency) and the UK Cabinet Office regarding the respiratory health hazards of volcanic ash. She also works with international governmental agencies and NGOs, helping them to prepare for future volcanic eruptions.
- Name: Benjamin Zaitchik
- Organization: Johns Hopkins University
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Benjamin Zaitchik’s research is directed at understanding, managing, and coping with climatic and hydrologic variability. Understanding variability requires examination of the natural processes that drive climate and surface change. Managing variability relates to our ability to control anthropogenic influences on climate and hydrology at the local, regional, and global scales. Coping with variability includes improved forecast systems and methods of risk assessment. In each of these areas of research he employs a combination of observation-both in situ and remotely sensed-and numerical modeling techniques.
- Name: France Lagroix
- Organization: Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris
- Email: FMPC_GP@agu.org
France Lagroix is a CNRS researcher at the IPGP (France). Trained as a geologist at Lakehead University in Canada (H.B.Sc., M.Sc) and as a geophysicist at the University of Minnesota (Ph.D.), she has acquired a breath of knowledge in the geosciences and an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals of mineral and rock magnetism. Her research is currently focused on furthering our understanding of continental Quaternary climate and environmental change from the magnetism of loess and paleosol deposits across the European continent.
- Name: David Cairns
- Organization: Texas A&M University
- Email: email@example.com
David Cairns is a Professor and Department Head of the Geography Department at Texas A&M University. His primary research interests are on the impacts of climate change on vegetation at short and long time scales in a variety of environments. The focus of his work is on ecotones, the transition zones between different vegetation types. Most of his fieldwork has been accomplished at tree line in the western United States, Alaska, and in northern Sweden. He also has projects in two other sensitive environments: saltmarshes on the coasts of Denmark and Texas, and tundra environments on the North Slope of Alaska. He uses a variety of approaches—including population genetics, dendroecological methods, and simulation modeling—to answer questions about how these environments respond to climate change.
- Name: Ben Kravitz
- Organization: Pacific Northwest National Lab
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ben Kravitz is a climate scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. His research interests involve using climate models to understand the global response to idealized radiative forcing, particularly the excitation of climate feedbacks. He is also the coordinator of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP).
- Name: Erwan Monier
- Organization: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Email: email@example.com
Dr Erwan Monier is a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Center for Global Change Science and Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. His research focuses on understanding and quantifying the uncertainty in future projections of global and regional climate change, assessing the impacts of climate change with a focus on the natural and managed land systems, estimating the benefits and costs of climate mitigation and improving the representation of the human-Earth coupled system in integrated assessment models. In recent years, he contributed to the intercomparison project with Earth System Models of Intermediate Complexity (EMICs) undertaken in support of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and he was the lead climate scientist for the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Change Impacts and Risk Analysis (CIRA) project, in which he was involved in various climate impact assessments including the impacts of climate on agriculture and water resources, on forestry and wildfires, and on air quality and health.
