Tania Lopez-Cantu

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Carnegie Mellon University working with Prof. Constantine Samaras. My work focuses on two complementary aspects of infrastructure adaptation to long-term climate change. One aims to characterize observed climate change and the future climate change uncertainty present in global climate models (GCM) projections that are relevant to the optimal performance of existing and design of future infrastructure. The second aims to develop tools that build upon the recognized future climate uncertainty and the specific system's resilience to make robust adaptation decisions. I mostly use Python and Geographical Information Systems (ArcGIS and QGIS) software for my daily research.
