Research Scientist - Climate Drivers Team
Candida Dewes

Dr. Dewes is a Research Scientist at NOAA’s Physical Sciences Division and CIRES/Western Water Assessment at the University of Colorado Boulder. She has extensive research experience in climate variability and climate change and their impacts on socio-ecological systems. Her research with the North Central Climate Science Center focuses on regional-scale land surface processes contributing to drought, and in particular, the variability of evaporative demand under climate change. She is also interested in the role of rain versus snow in mountainous terrain how these precipitation types impact regional water resources. Before joining the NC CSC, Dr. Dewes was a postdoc at the University of Virginia and Visiting Scholar at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, where she explored the climate impacts of land cover changes using NCAR’s Community Land Model (CLM). As a grad student at University of California, Santa Barbara, she investigated climate trends in Mexico and the impacts of climate variability on Mexican agriculture.
