Monier, who has a Ph.D. from the University of California, Davis (2009), has been at MIT since 2009. He became a Principal Research Scientist in 2016. Research Statement: Erwan Monier's research focuses on: (i) climate impact assessment, using processed-based models, integrated assessment models and econometric impact models; (ii) modeling the coupled human-Earth system, focusing on improving the representation of agriculture and land-use change; (iii) climate modeling and uncertainty quantification, using a hierarchy of climate models and investigating the uncertainty in global and regional projections of climate change and climate extremes; and (iv) integrated assessment of the food-energy-water-climate nexus. He was a major contributor to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Climate Change Impacts and Risk Analysis (CIRA) project. Within the CIRA project, he contributed to or led various climate impact assessments including the impacts of climate on agriculture and water resources, on forestry and wildfires, and on air quality and health. He also contributed to the intercomparison project with Earth System Models of Intermediate Complexity (EMICs) undertaken in support of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). Finally, he has contributed to the development of the MIT Earth System Model (MESM), an Earth system model of intermediate complexity, and designed and conducted large ensembles of climate simulations using a hierarchy of climate models.
