Disha Hauzaree

Research Assistant


Disha is a recent UCSB graduate with a B.S in statistics and data science. She worked on a project with Greg Husak and the CHC to analyze seasonal changes of precipitation in Africa, and explore the relationships and trends between precipitation, potential evapotranspiration, and sea surface temperatures to identify independent drivers of potential evapotranspiration. She is now working at the CHC to improve drought early warning data sets, produce visualizations, and maintain data integrity for famine-suceptible countries. 
Disha loves to play tennis, go outdoors, listen to live music, and try new food places with friends. Her favorite cuisines are Indian and Thai.
