Julien Emile-Geay studies how climate varies on timescales longer than a few years: the bassline of climate. Using models and observations, he creates conceptual representations of climate to shed light on its long-term behavior. He is particularly interested in constraining how much of climate variations arise from within, or are being triggered by external factors, natural or human. Beyond climate science, he also teaches the art of making reliable inferences from data – an increasingly vital necessity in the Age of Misinformation. Professor Emile-Geay is passionate about educating people of all levels of scientific literacy to the reality of man-made global warming, using knowledge to empower individuals to generate positive change.
