Marketa Podebradska is a Master's student at the School of Natural Resources, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with a specialization in Climate Assessment and Impacts. She obtained her Bachelor's degree at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague with a major in Applied Ecology. Marketa was awarded the Robitschek Scholarship in 2014 which provided her an opportunity to study at UNL for one year. During that time, she worked as a student intern at the NDMC and she began her research, in cooperation with Dr. Oglesby and Dr. Veres that led to her senior thesis: Influence of the Sea Surface Temperature Variability on Formation of Pluvial Conditions in North America. Marketa's work at the NDMC focuses on ecological impacts of drought, which contributes to the NDMC's Drought Risk Management Research Center and the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). This area will probably be a central point of her Master's thesis.
