Biography

Nancy B. Grimm studies the interaction of climate variation and change, human activities, and ecosystems. Her interdisciplinary research in both urban and stream ecosystems has focused on disturbance, resilience, and biogeochemical processes. The Grimm Lab studies how disturbances (such as flooding or drying) affect the structure and processes of desert streams, how chemical elements move through and cycle within both desert streams and cities, the effects of stormwater infrastructure on water and material movement across an urban landscape, and impacts of extreme events on urban social-ecological-technological systems and their infrastructure.

From 1997-2016, Professor Grimm directed the Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research program, a pioneering interdisciplinary study of the Phoenix metropolitan region. She currently co-directs a Sustainability Research Network focused on urban resilience to weather-related extreme events. She was president and is a fellow of the Ecological Society of America of and is a fellow of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She is an editor of  the AGU e-journal, Earth’s Futurea past program director for the U.S. National Science Foundation and senior scientist for the U.S. Global Change Research Program, and a lead author for two chapters of the U.S. National Climate Assessment, released in 2014.
