Dr. Imme Ebert-Uphoff
Imme Ebert-Uphoff received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics from the Technical University of Karlsruhe in Germany (known today as Karlsruhe Institute of Technology – KIT), followed by M.S and Ph.D. degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD). After a year of post-doctoral research at Laval University (Quebéc, Canada) in 1997, she joined the Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Atlanta, GA) in 1998 as Assistant Professor. In 2004 she became Associate Professor (with tenure). From 2006 to 2011 she was Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering with a joint appointment in the College of Computing at Georgia Tech. In 2011 she joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Colorado State University as research professor. Since 2019 she is also the Machine Learning lead for the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) at CSU.
For the past 10 years her research has focused on applying data science methods, primarily machine learning and causal discovery, for applications in weather and climate. She is the lead of the CSU team of the NSF AI Institute for Research on Trustworthy AI in Weather, Climate, and Coastal Oceanography (AI2ES). For more information, see her CIRA website.
