Erin Coughlan de Perez joins new climate science advisory panel

On January 12, 2024, Massachusetts launched a Climate Science Advisory Panel to provide expertise on statewide climate science and future projections.

The panel will advise the new Massachusetts Office of Climate Science on the latest advances and applications in climate science. Focusing on hazards like extreme heat, flooding, sea level rise, and health impacts, the panel will inform climate adaptation planning and projects at the state and local levels.

Feinstein Research Director Erin Coughlan de Perez serves on the panel, comprised of experts within Massachusetts and across the region.

“The guidance provided by these experts will ensure that we have the latest data to promote public awareness of climate change and to make the best decisions for our communities,” said Climate Chief Melissa Hoffer.
