Postdoctoral Scholar

Center for Climate Science


Dr. Walton is a postdoctoral researcher in UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. His primary interests are regional climate change and the downscaling of climate change information to high resolution. He has developed robust, efficient downscaling methods that capture the key physical processes in the region of interest. His current work focuses on best practices for the downscaling of climate model information. He is also focusing on understanding how downscaling can add value to our understanding of regional climate change. Dr. Walton holds PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from University of California, Los Angeles.
