Dr. Abby G. Frazier joined the East-West Center’s Research Program as a Fellow in July 2018. Before joining the Center, she completed Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in Geography at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Her dissertation research focused on the influence of climate variability on rainfall patterns and vegetation response in Hawai‘i. At the Center, she works on drought and its impacts on the management of water resources and ecosystems in the Pacific Islands. Her work also covers the impacts of changes in extreme events (e.g., flooding, drought) on rice farmers in mainland Southeast Asia.
