Danielle Touma is Assistant Research Professor at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. She studies how climate variability and human activity impact the characteristics of extreme climate events, specifically extreme fire weather and extreme precipitation. She uses observational datasets and large ensemble GCM simulations to quantify changes and underlying uncertainties of extreme climate events and compounding events under a warming climate.
