Stephanie is a land use scientist with over seven years of work experience addressing climate change, ecosystem conservation and food security. She is interested in the food, fuel, and forest dynamic, and how to shift the current land-use paradigm to a more sustainable system. Her doctoral work at U.Va. involves modeling the impact of agriculture, bioenergy and forest policies being employed in the tropics, and how they may alter the earth system - including climate change, soil and water provision and biodiversity. Currently, she is exploring the effects of livestock and crop intensification practices on climate and the supply of food crops through 2050.
