Ryan X. Ward
Zeller-Resnick First Year Fellow 2019
Ryan is a first year PhD student in environmental science & engineering, previously studying civil and environmental engineering at the University of Florida. Growing up on the west coast of Florida, a location sensitive to perturbations in the earth system such as severe weather events and long-term sea level rise, Ryan has always had deep-rooted curiosity and interest in sustainable development and coastal resiliency. To inform policy and decision-making on these practices, however, a better understanding of earth's changing climate is required. His research will focus on the interactions between aerosols, clouds, and climate, one of the most uncertain aspects of contemporary climate models, and address the extent to and mechanisms by which anthropogenic activity influence these interactions.
