On Wednesday, March 10, Dr. Rao Kotamarthi, Chief Scientist and head of Argonne’s Atmospheric Science and Climate Research Group (Environmental Sciences division), will talk about how new climate modeling innovations and President Biden’s initiatives to address climate change will mitigate the impacts of extreme weather events and affect the future of work. He will discuss what jobs these initiatives might create and/or eliminate, how future jobs may change, and what we as individuals can do to help.
Dr. Kotamarthi has nearly 30 years of experience in climate research. He is Principal Investigator for projects ranging from climate modeling to wind energy for the Department of
Energy’s Environmental Research Office. He’s led teams of climate scientists who analyzed the climate change impacts on Department of Defense installations and assessed the climate change vulnerabilities of lifeline infrastructure systems — transportation, power, water/wastewater, and telecommunications. He also authored the soon-to-be-published book, Downscaling Techniques for High-Resolution Climate Projections — From Global Change to Local Impacts, published by Cambridge University Press, UK.
The Future of Work is an exciting intergenerational initiative presented by The Village Chicago that explores the rapid changes taking place in our world. Our goal is to enable all generations to understand these changes and the opportunities they present, so they can participate as the future is re-invented.
