Julian Ramirez-Villegas

Research Fellow, University of Leeds

I gained a PhD on climate change impacts and adaptation in the School of Earth and Environment at University of Leeds in early 2014. Prior to that I worked in the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) as a research assisstant on crop-climate interactions and crop modelling. I am now working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Earth and Environment, at the University of Leeds, in the Climate Impacts Group led by Prof. Andy Challinor. I also work in the Decision and Policy Analysis program at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), through a Leeds-CIAT joint position funded by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS).

During my career I have contributed to a broad range of research projects at the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and have published a number of papers related to crop-climate modelling, climate change impacts, adaptation, conservation of biodiversity and plant genetic resources.
