Science Applications & Communications Coordinator

Sarah LeRoy is the Science Applications and Communications Coordinator for the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (SW CASC), where she oversees all communications and outreach between the Center, USGS and SW CASC investigators and stakeholders. Additionally, Sarah coordinates and supports various SW CASC initiatives, such as the Southwest Fire Climate Adaptation Partnership (SWFireCAP).

Sarah holds degrees in ecology and geosciences from the University of Arizona. Her previous research focused on paleoclimatology, where she reconstructed past precipitation using both lake sediments in the Peruvian Amazon and isotopes in Australian and Peruvian trees. Sarah now works to bridge the gap between science and society by working closely with decision makers to get them the scientific information they need in order to make decisions to prepare for the impacts of climate change.
