Zarrar Khan is a computational scientist at the Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). His research involves modeling and analyzing global interconnected human and earth systems with a focus on developing tools and methodologies to promote stakeholder engagement and facilitating the analysis of global modeling outputs in the context of local issues. His recent work focuses on the analysis and visualization of global modeling outputs at finer decision-relevant spatial and temporal scales. Prior to joining JGCRI Zarrar worked as a research scientist at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and as a professional geotechnical engineer at Arup. Dr. Zarrar completed his Ph.D. in a Joint Doctorate program awarded by the Universidad Pontificia Comillas, TU Delft, and KTH. He holds a master’s degree in Geotechnical engineering from Cornell University, a Master’s in Project Management from COMSATS University, and a Bachelor’s in engineering and environmental studies from Dartmouth College.
