Dr Ellen Dyer is an expert in African climate systems, with a strong background in cross-disciplinary collaboration and stakeholder engagement. Her research has contributed significantly to our understanding of critical African climate processes and has addressed some of the most pressing decision-making challenges in this field. She is particularly interested in studying historical climate patterns and projecting future trends using models. Another area of focus for her is exploring how climate information can be effectively communicated and disseminated to the wider public. Currently, Dr Dyer is leading a project called A Pan-African and Transdisciplinary Lens on the Margins: Tackling the Risks of Extreme Events (PALM-TREES), which is funded by the Canadian International Development Research Centre Climate Adaptation and Resilience Scheme. This project focuses on the experiences of gender minority groups in Africa and how they are affected by climate change. By taking a transdisciplinary approach, the project aims to develop strategies that can help these groups adapt to the challenges posed by extreme weather events.
The talk will be online. Please register on Eventbrite here.
