The Climate Hazards Center Community 

The UC Santa Barbara team conducts critical climate science research, which is shared with CHC field scientists who then communicate with key decision-makers, often serving as the vital link between climate crisis and timely humanitarian aid. The CHC also works with a number of Washington D.C.-based affiliates to synthesize climate early warning research with large-scale humanitarian efforts.

Climate Hazards Center Field Scientists

Field Scientists serve as the arm of the CHC, communicating up-to-date scientific information directly to the affected regions and their stakeholders. CHC Field Scientists also help to share observations from the field, which provides invaluable insight and highlights the multi-layered structure of the Center.

  • Postdoc Researcher
Donghoon joined the CHC in September 2020 as a postdoc researcher, where he focuses on applying EO products and machine learning to predict agricultural statistics in food-insecure countries in support of FEWS NET. 
 
While Donghoon’s Ph.D. research at UW-Madison included global-scale studies, he has also worked on research projects focused on flood-induced public health vulnerability and risk assessment in specific locations around the world with Red Cross Climate Centre, as well as various national disaster management agencies. 
 
Donghoon likes to travel to the actual location of his research focus in order to grasp the reality of the problems he seeks to solve and interact with key personnel. He has already visited Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and Peru and is looking forward to safely traveling in the future.
