Laura Landrum

Laura Landrum is a project scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Laura’s research interests lie in sea ice and polar climate. She uses climate models and observations to study polar climate change and variability, and interactions between high latitude oceans, atmosphere, and sea ice. She is also interested in using model projections of future climate change to help understand potential impacts on polar ecosystems and communities. She participates regularly in outreach events, discussing climate change with local communities. 

Laura received degrees from Dartmouth College (BA) and the University of Washington (MS, PhD).

Outside of science, Laura enjoys spending time outdoors with her family skiing, hiking, and biking.
