Brian Helmuth, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Marine and Environmental Sciences and School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University Helmuth Lab

Climate change is a global phenomenon, but its impacts play out on very local scales. Specifically, impacts are the result of weather events, which are in turn “trained” by climate. Moreover, the ways in which nonhuman organisms experience their world is radically different from how we humans perceive it, making it difficult for us to comprehend how we are affecting the natural world, and in turn how it affects society.

Dr. Helmuth is very active in outreach. Among other outreach activities the Helmuth Lab provides opportunities for teachers and students to assist with research.

-The presentation will follow a brief Annual Meeting of the Friends of Robbins Library at 7pm_
