Writing & Publishing on Climate Change


Writing & Publishing on Climate ChangeThursday, April 9
Gelman Room 702

This is the spring semester installment of Strategies for Interdisciplinary Publishing Success, where scholars will discuss the opportunities for, and challenges to, interdisciplinary research on climate change. Our panelists' work demonstrates how working across disciplinary boundaries can yield insight into one of the most critical issues of the day.

Claire Monteleoni is an assistant professor of Computer Science at George Washington University. Previously, she was research faculty at the Center for Computational Learning Systems, at Columbia University. She did a postdoc in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of California, San Diego, and completed her PhD and Masters in Computer Science, at MIT. She holds a Bachelors in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard. Her research focuses on machine learning algorithms and theory for problems including learning from data streams, learning from raw (unlabeled) data, learning from private data, and climate informatics: accelerating discovery in climate science with machine learning. Her work on climate informatics received the Best Application Paper Award at NASA CIDU 2010. In 2011, she co-founded the International Workshop on Climate Informatics, which is now in its fifth year, attracting climate scientists and data scientists from over 16 countries and 28 states. 

A native of Moscow, Russia, Dr. Dmitry (Dima) Streletskiy received his masters in geography from Moscow State University (2005), and doctoral degree in climatology from University of Delaware (2010). Since 2010, Dr. Streletskiy worked on several NSF-founded projects and taught several courses at the Geography Department of the GWU. His current research is focused on understanding diverse impacts of climate change on ecosystems, population and overall sustainability of the Arctic regions. Two NSF-founded projects reflect this work. One five-year project, established in collaboration with the Elliott School of International Affairs, is focused on supporting research network on urban sustainability in Arctic Russia. The other, three year project in collaboration with University of New Hampshire, is dealing with impacts of climate change on hydrology in Northern Eurasia. Dr. Streletskiy conducts extensive field research in regions of Siberia and Alaska. He is administering the Circumpolar Active Layer Monitoring webpage, the largest publicly available data respiratory on permafrost active layer. CALM data is used in climate assessments by NOAA, WMO, UNEP and others. He is contributing author to the Annual State of the Climate Reports published by NOAA, and the Annual Reports on Climate Conditions in Russian Federation published by the Roshydromet. More info is available at https://geography.columbian.gwu.edu/dmitry-streletskiy

Michael Svoboda is an Asst. Professor of Writing in the University Writing Program at George Washington University, where his classes alternate between the related themes of communicating climate change and political psychology. Michael holds a BS in Communication Arts from Cornell University and an MA in Speech Communication and PhD in Hermeneutics from Penn State. In between his MA and PhD, he owned and operated a bookstore and, from 1992–1998, produced and hosted a weekly radio book revue on WPSU, the NPR affiliate operated by Penn State.  Since 2010, he has also been a regular contributor to Yale Climate Connections (formerly The Yale Forum on Climate Change and the Media), for which he has written 40 pieces on how climate change is treated—or neglected—in advertising, movies, news media, political cartoons, political speeches, and TV dramas. A five-part series he wrote for YCC in Nov-Dec 2014 elicited an invitation from WIRES Climate Change to submit a review article on cli-fi films.
