Weston Anderson

Weston Anderson is an agroclimatologist studying the dynamics of climate variability and its relation to food security using reanalysis products, remote sensing observations and model simulations. Weston’s research interests include studying what causes multiple bread basket failures, how climate shocks affect livelihoods in Africa, and how climate hazards affect crop yields on intraseasonal, interannual, and climate-change time scales. Weston is currently an Earth Institute Fellow working on climate and food security with Lisa Goddard and Walter Baethgen at the IRI.
