Dr. Rigden's research focuses on the transfer of water and energy in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Currently, she is investigating water stress in agricultural systems to better constrain estimates of crop yields in future climates. She is keen on using observational data from a variety of platforms including satellites, weather stations, and eddy covariance towers to model the interactions between the land and atmosphere.

In 2017, Dr. Rigden earned a Ph.D. in Earth Science from Boston University (BU). Her dissertation research focused on detecting and attributing multi-decadal trends in evapotranspiration over the continental United States. Much of her time at BU was spent developing a method to estimate evapotranspiration from data collected at common weather stations, which we call the “ETRHEQ method.”
