Jane Baldwin

Jane studies jointly between Princeton’s Atmospheric and Oceanic Science program and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, where she is advised by Dr. Gabriel Vecchi. In her research, she uses a combination of dynamical climate models and atmospheric observations to elucidate the ties between global and regional climate, and move towards useful predictions of climate change at regional levels. Inspired by previous study in China and interests in environmental policy and history, she is currently studying the extratropical arid regions that stretch across interior Asia. She hopes to improve understanding of the controls on this region’s basic climate, as a prerequisite to examining its environmental change.
