Oklahoma EPSCoR External Advisory Board

The Oklahoma State EPSCoR Advisory Committee has appointed an External Advisory Board (EAB) for the climate variability research theme area on the recommendation of the Executive Committee. The EAB consists of discipline-specific experts from out-of-state universities and federal laboratories.  EAB members are:   

Dr. Stephen T. Jackson
Director of Dept. of the Interior Southwest Climate Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey
Professor of Geosciences, Natural Resources, and Environment
University of Arizona

Dr. Gregory A. Kiker
Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering
University of Florida

Dr. Silvia Secchi
Associate Professor of Geography and Environmental Resources
Director of Environmental Resources and Policy Ph.D. Program
Southern Illinois University

Dr. Daniel Wildcat

The EAB has been tasked with meeting twice during the second year of the program and at least once a year thereafter. The EAB conducts a technical and scientific review of the EPSCoR program at least once a year. Their review is based in part on research milestones and may include recommendations to the EC, the project director and the State EPSCoR Advisory Committee on the redirection or elimination of project aims and funds. In addition to their oversight responsibility, the EAB members also serve as an important resource for scientific, technical and management support.
