Congratulations Dr. Iris Stewart-Frey!

Friday, Apr. 5, 2013

The ESS Department is pleased to announce that Dr. Iris Stewart-Frey has been promoted to the rank of Associate Professor with tenure. During her time here at SCU Iris was awarded a major grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency and she authored a substantial number of papers in some of the top journals of her field, including the Journal of Geophysical Research, Water Resources Research, Journal of American Water Resources Association, and Climatic Change. Iris uses a combination of climate models and spatial analysis to understand how a warming global climate will affect the timing and amount of the water supply in the western US. Recently she has expanded the scope of her work to investigate effects on water quality. Her work has been highly influential in the climate science and hydrology communities.

In addition, Iris is an excellent teacher both in and out of the classroom. Her courses provide ES majors with in-depth training in earth science, water resources, and GIS, and she has collaborated extensively with undergraduate students.

We look forward to many more years of Iris’ excellence in both teaching and scholarship. Congratulations, Iris!
