Biography

Laura Harrison studies the impact of climate variability and change on the human-environment interface, with a focus on populations whose livelihoods are sensitive to climate shocks. Goals are to improve scientific understanding of spatial-temporal patterns of climate and the land surface- and their interaction- and assist with development of strategies that can improve regional food security at seasonal and multi-decadal timescales. Laura studies the impact of climate variability and change on the human-environment interface, with a focus on populations whose livelihoods are sensitive to climate shocks. Goals are to 1) improve scientific understanding of spatial-temporal patterns of climate and the land surface- and their interaction- and 2) assist with development of strategies that can improve regional food security at seasonal and multi-decadal timescales. Her current research involves statistical investigations into the sensitivity of biophysical systems to observed temperature variability and change. Some areas of focus are crop production systems in Mozambique and agro-pastoral systems in the Sahel.Laura Harrison current research involves statistical investigations into the sensitivity of biophysical systems to observed temperature variability and change.
