Working with drought data, or how a mathematician can be useful outside of the math department

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In this talk, I will describe my experience working as a short-term postdoc for the National Drought Mitigation Center, an institution under the umbrella of the University of Nebraska Lincoln. In particular, I will describe one of the problems I worked on (clustering drought stations), why this is a useful thing to do, the mathematics behind what I was doing, and an idea of how I went about solving the problem. The goal of the talk is to give mathematics/statistics students an idea of how knowledge of even basic mathematics can be extremely helpful to those who are not experts in these fields, and the types of problems you could be asked to deal with.
