Dr. William Anderegg“Climate Change: the climate, the risk, and Utah” Biology & Climate Science, University of UtahAssistant Professor in the School of Biological Sciences
William Anderegg grew up in Cortez, Colorado. He received his B.A. and Ph.D. in biology and climate change from Stanford University. He was a NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship at Princeton University. He has been an Assistant Professor in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Utah since 2016 and was awarded a Packard Foundation Fellowship for Science and Engineering.
Dr. Anderegg studies forest responses to climate change. As a part of Mission STEMCAP he gave a presentation about climate change’s impact on Utah ecosystems and food webs. His presentation included an interactive activity in which students portrayed different species within a forest ecosystem, connected by a string, and explored how the movement or loss of one species affected the rest of the food web.
