Emily Turner

Project Name:

Climate Extremes: More Frequent, More Severe, or Both?

Partnering with Dr. Richard Smith and Snehalata Huzurbaza at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (SAMSI), Ms. Turner will help open an avenue for North Carolina K-12 students to learn about statistics in memorable and meaningful ways.

As part of her Fellowship, she will collect data and prepare analyses to show how climate extremes are changing in terms of severity and frequency and research the theories concerning the extent to which this can be attributed to human activity.
