As a research assistant I work with an interdisciplinary group on an NSF funded project that is examining the impact of climate change induced drought on the lower treeline in the western US, and what this means for forest distribution throughout the rest of the century. I am part of the hydrology team focusing on examining water distribution throughout the landscape as well as heading the modeling portions of this study.
Caelan Simeone grew up in Bozeman, MT before moving over the divide to Missoula, MT where he earned a B.S. in Geosciences with a minor in Climate Change Studies. He is currently a M.S. student in Geosciences examining the spatial distribution of drought induced hydrological stress in forested mountain ecosystems in the American West. Other research interests focus on the interface between hydrology and ecology and how these systems interact and are affected by human disturbance. Outside of academia he enjoys traveling to new places, skiing, and climbing.
