Bio

Dr Erwan Monier is a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. His research focuses on uncertainty quantification of future projections of global and regional climate change, climate change impact assessment with a focus on the natural and managed land systems, cost-benefit analysis of climate mitigation, and improving the representation of the coupled human-Earth 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. Within the CIRA project, 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. He completed his PhD in Atmospheric Science at the University of California, Davis, and holds a Master's degree in Hydraulics and Fluid Dynamics Engineering from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse.
