Biography

Brooke Stewart received her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Asheville and Master of Science degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her graduate research examined changes in the frequency of extreme precipitation and temperature events in Alaska. Ms. Stewart has worked for NOAA NCEI's Technical Support Unit to the National Climate Assessment in a programmatic and scientific support role since March 2010. Her current position continues her association with the Assessment TSU as a science editor and publication coordinator. In this role, she will help to ensure scientific accuracy and consistency and timely production of materials for the National Climate Assessment.

Ms. Stewart joined NCICS as a Research Associate in August 2012.
