I am a graduate student, so fairly new to climate forecasts. I have had some experience using seasonal climate forecasts and watershed modelling.

Application Sectors

  • Agriculture
  • Coastal Ecosystems
  • Energy
  • Local or state government
  • Urban
  • Wetlands


  • Bio-systems Engineering


  • Currently completing Master's thesis research in evaluating the use of seasonal climate forecasts to drive a drought index model for use in predicting residential irrigation demand.
  • Interested in the applicability of seasonal climate forecasts to agricultural and water resources planning (especially in their utility to increase resilience to periods of flood/drought in developing nations).
  • Interested in the use of climate forecasting (both long and short term) in water resource and ecosystem restoration planning.
