Ani St. Amand is an Interdisciplinary Ph.D. student at the University of Maine where she works with the Climate Change Institute, the Anthropology Department, and the School of Earth and Climate Sciences. She is supported by the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program and studies abrupt climate change and human adaptation. Ani conducts her fieldwork in Peru, where she explores the history of El Niño during the Holocene using climate proxies from the archaeological record. Strengthening our understanding of El Niño will inform climate models and projections of this global phenomenon over the course of the next century. Ani's advisors are Drs. Alice Kelley and Daniel Sandweiss.
