Katharine Ricke
Assistant Professor of Climate Science and Policy, University of California, San Diego

Katharine Ricke is an assistant professor at the University of California, San Diego with a joint appointment in the School of Global Policy and Strategy and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Her research focuses on how uncertainty and diversity influence decisions on climate policy, considering the projected impacts of climate change as well as preferences for how to address them. Dr. Ricke’s goal is to reach conclusions that can guide decision-making in such areas as investments in technology to mitigate climate change, and ways to deal with human migration spurred by climate change. Prior to UCSD, Ricke was a Fellow at the Carnegie Institution for Science.

Project Title: A Modular Framework for Understanding Migration Pressures from Climate Change
