Laura brings her expertise in climate information for decision making to partnerships between GLISA and regional stakeholders to advance climate change adaptation in the Great Lakes Region. Laura’s work focuses on how to incorporate future climate model projections and their uncertainty into decision-making processes.
Laura completed her master’s degree in Geography from Northern Illinois University in 2012, where her studies focused primarily on evaluating the quality of climate model data for applications in the Great Lakes Region. This work has directly benefited GLISA’s role in making recommendations of climate projections to use in regional decision-making. Laura completed her Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a focus in climate physics from the University of Michigan in 2009.
