About Me

Sara Sanchez

Postdoctoral Research Associate(she/her)University of Colorado

I'm a climate scientist. I study how Earth's climate has varied over the last millennium and how it could change in the future. I'm fascinated with tropical climate variability and am especially interested in developing ways to best leverage information from coral geochemical archives and climate models to better understand phenomena that is poorly resolved by the instrumental record.

I'm a Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (mentored by Kris Karnauskas). I recently finished a Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean (JISAO) Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Washington (working with Greg Hakim and Casey Saenger). I completed my Ph.D. in Oceanography, specializing in Climate Science, in 2018 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, advised by Chris Charles.
