Dr. Edward Vizy is a Research Scientist Associate in the Department of Geological Sciences/Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas at Austin. He is an atmospheric scientist, and his work is focused primarily on understanding regional climate variability/climate change over the tropics/sub-tropics including Africa. Dr. Vizy has over ten years experience developing and adapting high resolution regional climate system models for use in addressing climate related issues. His current work concerns improving our understanding of how extreme weather events (i.e., droughts, heat waves, floods, hurricanes) are projected to change in the future due to global warming and assessing what impact these changes will have on society. Dr. Vizy earned his PhD in Atmospheric Science from Cornell University in 2003.
