Kyle Lesinger is 1st year PhD student in the Department of Earth System Sciences within the College of Agriculture. He received his M.S. in Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences, and B.S. in Biology, both from Auburn University. He is currently researching the causes and impacts of flash droughts and how we are able to forecast these droughts with increasing skill with deep learning technology.  In his spare time, he enjoys playing the trumpet and hiking, kayaking, and most other activities that take him outdoors.  He is from nearby Montgomery, Alabama.

"I am excited to be in the NRT Climate Resilience Project because now I am a part of a collaborative community that is dedicated towards a stronger understanding of how our Earth responds to climate change anomalies and how we can effectively mitigate these impacts. This program will give me an opportunity to develop my professional skills in a meaningful way that will better prepare me for future career opportunities."
