Benjamin Zaitchik

Assistant Professor, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Johns Hopkins University
Benjamin Zaitchik’s research is directed at understanding, managing, and coping with climatic and hydrologic variability. He looks for new approaches to controlling human influences on climate and water resources at local, regional and global scales, and explores improved forecast systems and methods of risk assessment. His work has received funding from NASA, the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, and appeared in the Journal of Climate and Water Resources Research, among others. Zaitchik is interested in helping provide new insights in such crucial areas as transboundary water management, climate-informed disease early warning systems, and adaptation strategies in subsistence agricultural communities.
