STEAM Mentor Meet-up: Presenters
 

Allegra Le Grande | Paleoclimatologist

体育投注网Allegra is a professional climate scientist who lives in Upper Manhattan with her two kids and husband. Although she has been a New Yorker for nearly 20 years, she is originally from West Texas. Allegra does research at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and Columbia University’s Center for Climate Systems Research with a Global Climate Model (the kind used in predicting future climate change) to discover details about the WATER cycle in the past and present. She does research about how VOLCANOES impacted climates of the past, too. In both, she hopes that by improving our ability to understand past climate, we will improve our understanding and predictions of the climate in the future.
