Dr. Kopp’s research focuses on using statistical approaches, primarily Bayesian in nature, to understand the record of past environmental changes and apply it to test and improve models of future global change. Complementing these geohistorical investigations, his research group also explores how humanity’s uncertain climate impacts can be incorporated into climate change mitigation and adaptation decision-making. One major area of research spanning these domains is the reconstruction of past sea-level changes, the projection of future changes, and the assessment of their implications for coastal resilience.
