Andrew Monaghan employs computer models to study weather and climate at regional scales, with an emphasis on climate change, and the impacts of climate on human health. He is currently involved in a project to study the influence of climate on human plague transmission Uganda, where factors such as temperature and precipitation play an important role in determining risk. He is also interested in Antarctic climate variability. Monaghan works in NCAR’s Research Applications Laboratory.
