My name is Anna Black and I am a graduate student in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington in Seattle. I'm interested in paleoclimate, statistics, and climate dynamics. My current research focuses on reconstructing Earth's radiation fields in the pre-satellite era. I am advised by Professor Greg Hakim.
I graduated from Williams College in 2019, where I majored in statistics and physics. My interest in paleoclimate began in college, where I had the opportunity to participate in two projects studying past climate. As a Clare Boothe Luce Scholar, I worked with Professor Mea Cook using oceanic sediment cores to study ocean circulation on millennial and orbital timescales. As a summer student fellow at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, I worked with Professor Sloan Coats to study the role the El Nino-Southern Oscillation played in driving megadroughts during the Common Era.
