Description

There's an old joke that "Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it." Benjamin Zaitchik wants to do something about it, and with weather patterns changing all over the world, we have to do something about it. His team doesn't try to change the weather, but they do try to understand and predict the ways in which weather and climate impact things we all care about: our food, our health, our safety. Come hear about Zaitchik's recent projects, ranging from predicting flash droughts and outbreaks of enteric diseases, to enhancing the value of the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Dashboard for COVID-19 research.

Hopkins on the Hill is a biennial showcase of the range, value, and impact of federally funded research and programming at Johns Hopkins University. This year, we're taking our science into your homes and on your screens. Hear from early career researchers and practitioners to learn about their work in tracking and combatting COVID-19, education, space exploration, health care, extreme materials, climate change, and more.
