Cindy Shellito is passionate about engaging students in learning about climate change and inspiring them to seek ways to take action. Her PhD focused on using numerical models to simulate warm climates in Earth’s deep past. Her work now focuses more on understanding the impacts of modern global warming. In 2015, she was awarded a Fulbright grant that supported a 6-month collaboration with colleagues in Ecuador where she taught meteorology and studied weather patterns in the Andes. She loves being outdoors, learning new languages, and finding ways to share her experiences through writing and art.
