Back to Class with Professor Ibarra and Dr. Sekhon

Floods, Droughts, Climate Change, Oh My!

Reconstructing Climate & the Water Cycle in Asia-Pacific

Presented by Brown Alumni Association of Hawaii

Saturday, March 5, 2022 4:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time | Introductory remarks followed by speaking program and Q&A Join us on Zoom for this virtual event. Complimentary admission with pre-registration (required). In their virtual presentation, Brown University's Dr. Daniel Ibarra and Dr. Natasha Sekhon will take us back in time to look at records of past floods, droughts, and climate change, and their geological effects, and will discuss the implications for the future. Drs. Ibarra and Sekhon will describe their group’s efforts in leading an NSF-funded project (AGILE) seeking to improve Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) graduate student representation in graduate programs. Despite the AAPI population representing one of the fastest growing demographics in the U.S. today, we lag in participation and representation in geoscience programs compared to other STEM fields. The University of Hawaii at Manoa is one of seven institutions participating in the AGILE project.

The Zoom link will be provided to all registrants one day prior to the event.
