We are an inclusive, interdisciplinary group working at the interface of engineering, earth science, data science, economics, and decision science. Join us to work on managing climate risk across a variety of sectors and scales. Students from underrepresented groups and first-generation students are particularly encouraged to apply.

Before applying, please visit the lab manual to make sure that you're comfortable with our mission, values, expectations, and policies.


There are openings for undergraduates to work for credit.

Graduate Students

We’re looking to admit several Ph.D and M.S. students in the 2022-2023 admissions cycle to work on projects using machine learning and optimization for climate risk analysis and management.

There are projects for M.Eng. students if you’re interested in a project that aligns with our research and mission.

To Apply:

Please see the lab manual’s application instructions for graduate students. Feel free to email Vivek to introduce yourself and ask questions.

Postdoctoral Researchers

We are looking to hire a postdoc to work on coastal flood risk modeling. Particular areas of interest include agent-based modeling and infrastructure modeling, but the successful candidate will have a large degree of freedom in designing their research portfolio. I am also happy to work with you on other postdoctoral opportunities, within Cornell or externally-funded. Please reach out for more information.
