Jilmarie Stephens, 2021-2022 CAP Fellow
Dr. Jilmarie Stephens is a member of the inaugural 2021-2022 "Future of Fire" cohort in the CASC Network Climate Adaptation Postdoctoral Fellows Program. She is working with the North Central CASC at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Dr. Stephens is a bio-micro-meteorologist studying plant-atmosphere interactions in a changing climate, from surface layer turbulence to ecosystem scale climate, carbon, and water fluxes. Her doctoral work focused on long term trends in Boreal forest ecosystems using both in-situ flux tower measurements and ecophysiological modeling techniques. At CIRES/NC CASC, her research focuses on understanding changing wildfire regimes in the North Central region of the US using observations and numerical modeling approaches. She has also served as a CIRES RECCS community college student mentor. Jilmarie received her B.S. and M.S. in Atmospheric Science at UC Davis and her Ph.D. in Soil Science from the University of British Columbia.
