Luca Anna Palásti studies adaptation to weather/climate variability and change by applying risk, decision, and economic analyses within the realms of environment and society. She earned her master's degree in 2021 with a thesis entitled "Assessing the viability of forecast-informed decision-making: the value of information provided by Grass-Cast." and continues her PhD studies at the Department of Geography, University of Colorado Boulder.

We work to develop a testbed of generalizable decision models that can be simulated for a range of weather and climate sensitive decision structures and contexts to calculate the economic value added in those sectors by applying climate predictions.
