Welcome! The Climate and Water lab is headed by Dr. Sylvia Dee, a climate scientist specializing in atmospheric modeling, water isotope physics, and paleoclimate data-model comparison.
Our research combines climate information from the Past and Present to improve predictions of Future climate.
Our work focuses on strategies for linking data from general circulation models, satellite retrievals of stable water isotope ratios, and high-resolution paleoclimate observations such as ice cores, tree rings, and corals.
This year, we are welcoming four (!) new postdocs to our lab! Check out their bios on the "People" page!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information about Ph.D. and postdoc positions. Undergraduate students at Rice can also reach out for research opportunities in the lab.
Former Postdoc Jun Hu moved to Xiamen University in January, 2022, to begin as a tenure-track assistant professor! We are so pround of Jun and were so grateful for his work in our lab.
Former Postdoc Allison Lawman is now a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Colorado, Boulder, working on Holocene climate change!
Dr. Lizzie Wallace is moving to a faculty position at Old Dominion University this fall! Lizzie will be sorely missed, but we're so happy for her!
