Pete Newton is an interdisciplinary scientist who is interested in understanding how governance interventions affect synergies and trade-offs between environmental, economic, and social outcomes in socio-environmental systems.  He works principally in agricultural and tropical forest landscapes, mainly in Brazil but also with partners in Indonesia, Nepal, and elsewhere. Much of his work focuses on sustainable food systems, land-use change, and rural livelihoods.

Kevin Krizek
Policy Core
Sciences Core

Kevin's research focuses on transport and land use policies that promote sustainable and affordable urban travel and enhance urban livability.  He does this through scholarly articles and books, practice-based applications, and blogging.

Nicole Lovenduski
Sciences Core

The major focus of Nicole's research thus far has been the exchange of CO2 between the atmosphere and the Southern Ocean, a large oceanic region stretching from the Antarctic continent to the subtropics of the Southern Hemisphere. The Southern Ocean is a region of critical importance to the global carbon cycle, as it is responsible for approximately half of the oceanic CO2 uptake.  Her research has helped to show that the absorption of CO2 by the Southern Ocean may have slowed in recent decades, due to anthropogenic changes in the climate system.

Jeremiah Osborne-Gowey

Sciences Core

Jeremiah is a PhD student interested in the intersection of science and policy and how science is used in the policy-making process.  His current research focuses on understanding the adaptation of learning networks and knowledge transfer among the members of the Locally Managed Marine Area (LMMA) Network of the Indo-Pacific, a not-for-profit network that supports community-driven adaptive marine resource management and conservation.  Find out more about what Jeremiah does (here) and more about the LMMA Network (here).

Timothy Molnar
Sciences Core

Tim Molnar is a graduate student in the ENVS program.  His transdisciplinary interests seek to apply quantitative and qualitative methodology to bridge the gap between issues of climate change, environmental sociology, and renewable energy.  Additionally, he is currently working at INSTAAR on an NSF funded project tracking mercury cycling in the Alaskan Arctic.
