Emma Levin

PhD Candidate, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences

Emma Levin is a first year Ph.D. student in the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences program, working with Professor Gabriel Vecchi. Her research interest lies in predicting extreme natural hazard events in a warming climate, including flooding, rainfall and hurricanes, using computational models. She hopes to connect her research results to climate adaptation policymaking. Emma has conducted climate science research in a variety of sectors, including at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and Jupiter Intelligence, a climate risk start-up. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Mathematics with a concentration in Earth and Planetary Sciences and a certificate in Energy Studies from Yale College.
