Shaina Sadai is the Hitz Fellow for Litigation-Relevant Science at the Union of Concerned Scientists. Her research interests include sea level rise, icesheet dynamics, and agriculture methane emissions. Her recent dissertation research focused on predicting changes in global climate resulting from Antarctic Ice Sheet instability and the climate justice implications of modeling results. Dr. Sadai will focus her two year fellowship on further exploring climate attribution of sea level rise and global methane emissions.
Shaina earned her PhD at UMass Amherst in the Department of Geosciences. She also holds a M.S in Applied Mathematics and a B.S in Astronomy/Astrophysics and a B.S in Physics from UMass Amherst.
