Co-Principal Investigator, RDCEP 2
Research Scientist and Fellow, Computation Institute, University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory
Adjunct Research Scientist, Columbia University Center for Climate Systems Research
Areas of Expertise:
- Climate change impacts and adaptation in agriculture and forestry
- Integrated assessment and economic modeling, primarily CGE and PE
- Land use cover and change modeling
- Large scale computation and ensemble simulation
Elliott works on a variety of topics at the interface of global climate change and environmental & social sciences through an assortment of applied modeling and computational projects. He leads a team at RDCEP and in the Agricultural Modeling Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP). He currently runs several projects designed to improve global change vulnerability, impact, and adaptation (VIA) assessment tools (primarily in agriculture and forestry), using large-scale high-resolution models enabled by high-performance computing. He also works on predictions of agricultural production at seasonal time scales, the effects of large-scale extreme events (such as droughts and heat waves), and with socio-economic modeling and scenario analysis in the context of integrated assessment models.
Elliott received his PhD in high-energy theoretical particle physics from McGill University in 2008. He has been with the Computation Institute since 2008.
