Corey is an environmental scientist interested in climate change and its impacts on people and nature. During his PhD, he studied how weather has affected food crops historically, drawing lessons to help adapt agriculture to a more extreme climate. He also assessed the greenhouse gas emissions likely to result from the climate transition. As a Neukom Fellow, Corey is investigating how rising atmospheric carbon dioxide may change how crops and plants in general interact with climate extremes. In his research, he integrates diverse observational data with biophysical and statistical models. Corey is also an enthusiastic environmental and climate educator.
