Jeffrey Morisette ’90 Heads the North Central Climate Science Center
By Doug Goodnough
So, just what can you do with a degree in mathematics?
How about . . .
• Work for NASA interpreting satellite data,
• Map habitat from weather patterns and predicted changes in climate,
• Bring a data-driven approach to earth and environmental sciences,
• Run a multimillion dollar, multi-state science center for the federal government.
Dr. Jeffrey Morisette ’90 has accomplished all those things since graduating from Siena Heights University. Currently the director of the U.S. Department of the Interior’s North Central Climate Science Center, Morisette works with multiple agencies and organizations to help development long-term strategies and forecasts for what he believes is a rapidly changing climate.
