Ehsan Najafi, Ph.D., is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Environmental Sciences Initiative. Ehsan, along with a consortium of academic partners, analyzes the contemporary and future climate-induced extremes on food-energy-water systems (C-FEWS) of the Northeastern and Midwestern United States. Dr. Najafi performs large-scale food-water-energy nexus modeling studies, in addition to analyzing the role of traditional engineering assets and ecosystem services in regional food-energy-water systems. In coordination with Professor Charles Vorosmarty, Dr. Najafi overseas project management across various aspects of C-FEWS project. Ehsan completed his PhD in Civil Engineering, with a focus on assessing the impacts of climate and on global food-water-energy nexus at the NOAA CREST Center of City University of New York (City College).
