Christine A. Shields is a Project Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NSF NCAR) with expertise in applying Earth System Models to Earth’s past, present and future climates. Christine focuses on Earth’s hydrological cycle in the context of climate change, with particular emphasis on atmospheric rivers (ARs), monsoons, cyclones, and extreme events, which sit at the intersection between weather and climate. She studies how weather systems connect regions around the globe, including polar climate, and is a proponent of interdisciplinary and collaborative science.  Christine is also an American Geophysical Union (AGU) Voices for Science alumni, a current AGU Local Partner, and is keenly interested in building sustainable and actionable climate change policy.
