Bronwen Konecky’s research investigates climate, water, and ecosystem variations in the Earth’s tropical regions, from the past ~150,000 years to the 21st century. 

Konecky’s dual focus on ancient and modern systems provides a geologic perspective on present-day climate change, while using present-day climate processes to better understand the geologic past. Her lab’s research investigates tropical climate variability and climate change using tools of stable isotope hydrology, paleolimnology, organic geochemistry, and modeling. Her group’s work is guided by one overarching question: How does a changing climate affect rainfall and ecosystems in the Earth’s tropical regions?
