Dr. Fernando Garcia Menendez uses computational modeling and data analysis to explore interdisciplinary questions related to air pollution, climate change, and environmental policy. His research group’s work focuses on developing tools based on numerical methods, uncertainty analysis, and integrated assessment modeling to simulate interactions between environmental and human systems. He is a member of the Environmental, Water Resources, and Coastal Engineering and Computing and Systems research cores within the department.
Dr. Garcia Menendez received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He completed his M.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford University and B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Tecnológico de Monterrey. Prior to joining NC State, he was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Center for Global Change Science and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
