About Heidi Cullen
Heidi Cullen serves as Vice President for External Communications as well as a research scientist and correspondent for Climate Central - a non-profit science journalism organization headquartered in Princeton, NJ.
Before joining Climate Central, where she reports on climate and energy issues for programs like PBS NewsHour, Dr. Cullen served as The Weather Channel’s first on-air climate expert and helped create Forecast Earth, a weekly television series focused on issues related to climate change and the environment.
Prior to that Dr. Cullen worked as a research scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, CO. She received the NOAA Climate & Global Change Fellowship and spent two years at Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society working to apply long-range climate forecasts to the water resources sector in Brazil and Paraguay. She is a member of the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society and is an Associate Editor of the journal Weather, Climate, Society.
Dr. Cullen is the author of The Weather of the Future, published in August of 2010 by Harper Collins and is a Visiting Lecturer at Princeton University. In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Heidi Cullen, one of the world's foremost climatologists and environmental journalists, puts a vivid face on climate change, offering a new way of seeing this phenomenon not just as an event set to happen in the distant future but as something happening right now in our own backyards. Cullen combines the latest research from scientists on the ground with state-of-the-art climate-model projections to create climate-change scenarios for seven of the most at-risk locations around the world.
