Research

Morgan Levy aims to do data-driven, policy-relevant research that connects climate to environmental and human health through terrestrial water cycle processes.

Morgan Levy uses methods from environmental and climate science, data science, and hydrology to study water resources and anthropogenic change. She is interested in the effects of anthropogenic change on freshwater systems, including climate change, land use change, and human water use and management. Her research uses data-driven analysis methods and combines diverse data sources, including in situ weather and hydrologic monitoring, remotely-sensed climate and land surface data, and social demographic and survey data. Levy’s research addresses the practical challenges of combining methods from engineering, earth, and social sciences in order to investigate connections between climate, hydrology, health, and equity.
