Project Description

Dr. Hassanzadeh is an assistant professor in the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Earth, Environmental, and Planetary Sciences at Rice University. Before joining Rice, he was at Harvard University as a Ziff Environmental Fellow with the Center for the Environment and a Research Associate with the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences. Dr. Hassanzadeh received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and M.A. in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Hassanzadehis research is aimed at providing reliable scientific information with quantified uncertainties about the historical and future extreme events. Using fundamentals of atmospheric dynamics and hierarchies of idealized-to-comprehensive climate models, mathematical/statistical modeling, and advanced machine learning techniques, Dr. Hassanzadeh works on improving the understanding of extreme weather events and their dynamics, predictability, and response to climate change. His Environmental Fluid Dynamics Group at Rice studies fundamentals of geophysical/environmental turbulence and dynamics of large-scale atmospheric circulation and extreme weather events.
