Assistant Professor of Climate Change Impacts
Department of Land, Air and Water Resources
Erwan Monier is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources at the University of California, Davis. Dr. Monier’s research explores the climate change and extreme weather impacts and risks to various sectors of the economy and ecosystem services, including agriculture, forestry and wildfires, water resources, and air quality and health. His Global Environmental Change research group uses interdisciplinary approaches to examine the co-evolution of human and natural systems in the face of global environmental change and to build the next generation of tools to explore the dynamics of the energy-water-land system and the interactions between climate change, air quality and health.
Over his career, he has had the privilege of collaborating with a lot of great people. Currently, this includes his colleagues here at UC Davis. Previously, he was a researcher at MIT for 9 years, with his primary affiliation in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change, and secondary affiliations in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Climate, and the Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab.
Before coming to MIT, he received a PhD in atmospheric science in the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources at the University of California, Davis. He also obtained a M.Eng. in Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics at the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, ENSEEIHT.
