Past Fellow

Education

BA: Computer Science & Integrated Science, Northwestern, 2013

Research Interests

Ethan’s research  focused on how climate change will influence the magnitude and frequency of extreme weather events, and how the current climate models simulate both the events themselves and the large-scale atmospheric dynamics driving them. He is interested in the impacts of climate change on a range of human systems, from aviation to agriculture.
