katharine hayhoe Katharine Hayhoe is a research professor in the Department of Geosciences at Texas Tech University. She has degrees in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Toronto, and in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Illinois.

Her research is motivated by the desire to communicate the reality of climate change to those who will be most affected by it. For that reason, Katharine's studies look at how climate change will affect areas as diverse as California's grape-growing regions to the city of Chicago's roads and buildings. She has led regional climate assessments for the Great Lakes region, the state of California, the U.S. Northeast, and the Midwest and served on review panels for the California Bay-Delta Authority, the International Joint Commission on the Great Lakes, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Katharine is a Lead Author for the 2009 Unified Synthesis Product, a federal assessment of climate change impacts on public health, water resources, energy, agriculture, and the natural environment of the United States.

Katharine also heads a scientific consulting firm, ATMOS Research and Consulting (ARC). ARC provides climate change projections and impact assessments for a broad range of industry and government clients that include city, state, and federal government agencies, nonprofit organizations, financial investment firms, and even international embassies.

Katharine is honored to have contributed her research to and served as an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
