Graham McDowell

I specialize in climate change vulnerability and adaptation in high mountain socio-ecological systems, with a focus on lived experiences of changes in glacial hydrology. I have led community-level projects in the Nepal Himalaya, Peruvian Andes, Rocky Mountains, Greenland, and Baffin Island as well as numerous global-scale assessments of the human dimensions of climate change in cold regions. I am active in publishing and presenting my scholarly contributions and am committed to the mobilization of scientific knowledge, including through my work as a Contributing Author with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and Editorial Board member for the journal Mountain Research and Development. I am currently a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow affiliated with the University of Zurich as well as the Project Leader for the Canadian Mountain Assessment. I hold degrees from the University of British Columbia (PhD), the University of Oxford (MSc), and McGill University (BA Hons).
