Caroline Williams helps to develop metrics of current and future climate risk by processing, analyzing, and visualizing geospatial climate data and Earth observations. She is proud that her work can enhance community decision-making in response to the climate crisis.
Williams has long been interested in understanding and studying the environment through a scientific perspective. Before joining Woodwell climate, she worked for the NASA DEVELOP National Program, contributing to projects that included crop yield forecasting in Argentina and detecting flooding impact in Central America from Hurricanes Eta and Iota to support decision-makers. Williams was also a NASA DEVELOP Fellow, managing projects that applied Earth observations in ecological conservation, water resources, agriculture, disasters, climate, and urban development.
Williams received her B.A. in Environmental Science and M.S. in Geographic Information Science from Clark University. She currently lives on the New Hampshire Seacoast, where she grew up, and in her time outside of work enjoys going on beach walks, reading comics, and pursuing art.
