Dr. Danny Blair is a geography professor and co-director of science for the Prairie Climate Centre. He obtained his BSc and MSc degrees from the University of Regina and a PhD from the University of Manitoba.

His main research interests are climate variability and climate change in Canada’s western interior. He was a contributing author of Canada’s National Assessment of Climate Change released in 2008, and is a frequent presenter and participant in workshops about climate change in the Prairie provinces.
