Ian N Williams
- Assistant Professor, Geological and Atmospheric Sciences
My research area spans atmospheric and terrestrial ecosystem sciences, including land-atmosphere interactions, boundary layer meteorology, and Earth system modeling. I use a combination of Earth system models, cloud-resolving models, and satellite and ground-based measurements and remote-sensing. The objective of my current research is to improve prediction of extreme precipitation and drought, by modeling the physical processes connecting clouds, climate, and the land surface.
