Dr Faye Cruz completed her PhD in August 2010 under the supervision of Prof. Andy Pitman. Her PhD research examined the climate impacts of the vegetation response to increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Dr Cruz also worked with Prof. Pitman in the Land Use and Climate: Identification of robust impacts (LUCID) project.  

Dr Cruz joined the Manila Observatory in Quezon City, Philippines in November 2009, where she is actively involved in research concerning regional climate and climate change, extreme weather events and interactions between land surface and climate. As a Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) International Research Fellow at the Meteorological Research Institute in Japan, Dr Cruz' research aims to produce high-resolution climate change information for the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Dr Cruz is also involved in the Southeast Asia Regional Climate Downscaling (SEACLID) / Coordinated Regional Climate Downscaling Experiment (CORDEX)-Southeast Asia project under the CORDEX project of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP).
