Dr. Corene Matyas is quoted in an article in Forbes Magazine written by Dr. Marshall Shepherd at the University of Georgia. The article talks about the potential impacts of Cyclone Kenneth, forecast to affect Mozambique after Cyclone Idai hit the middle of the country hard in March. Dr. Matyas authored a 2015 paper in the International Journal of Climatology that examined tracks of tropical cyclones moving through the Mozambique Channel, and co-authored three articles on socio-economic impacts of extreme weather on rural subsistence farmers in the country. She is currently mentoring undergraduate student Sarah VanSchoick in research about the rainfall patterns of cyclones that move over Madagascar and Mozambique.
