Dr. Britta Daudert
Assistant Research Scientist, Climatology

Professional Interests

Britta Daudert obtained her undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Mathematical Physics at NUI Maynooth in Ireland. She continued her studies at UC Riverside where she focused on Fractal Geometry, in particular vibrational properties of Fractal Drums, the subject of her Ph.D. degree in Mathematics.

After graduating from Riverside in March of 2007, she joined the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) at Caltech in Pasadea as a scientific analyst. There she supported LIGO in its pursuit of scientific grid computing.

In May 2012 she started working as an Assistant Research Scientist at the Western Regional Climate Center (WRCC) within the Desert Research Institute (DRI) located in Reno, Nevada. Her focus is to support the mission of the Southwest Climate Science Center (WS-CSC) by developing mechanisms to provide easy access to climate data and data products by means of user friendly and intuitive web interfaces.She will work closely with researchers and managers within the CSC Program at regional and national levels, with representatives of the Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCC) and with researchers and mangers throughout the Department of the Interior to act as a bridge between NOAA Regional Climate Centers and the CSC program.

Britta would like to bring her broad scientific knowledge base and her analytic skills set to the table. She hopes that she can support, enable and participate in original research within the Climate Sciences.
