Nicole Davi is a Professor in the Environmental Science Department and an Adjunct Senior Research Scientist at the Tree-Ring Laboratory at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Davi’s research focuses on developing and interpreting high-resolution paleoclimatic records in order to further our understanding of climate change over the past 2000 years. She has authored/co-authored dozens of peer-review articles on paleoclimate and has received awards from National Science Foundation and other funding agencies for her research.

Davi also has several projects that focus on improving science literacy for undergraduate and K-12 students. She recently led a team to develop Tree-Ring Expeditions, online labs geared for community college and undergraduate instructors and their students, that tap into the excitement of field expeditions while introducing students to groundbreaking tree-ring studies that have had important societal impact. Davi also enjoys collaborating with artists to explore new and compelling ways to communicate the excitement of scientific explorations with diverse audiences.
