Stephanie received a BA from San Diego State University and a MEM in ecosystem science from Duke University. She is interested in biosphere-atmosphere dynamics, and shifting the current forest-food-fuel land use paradigm to a more sustainable system. Her doctoral research under advisor, Deborah Lawrence, explores the terrestrial carbon sink’s response and feedback to climate change. Through field experimentation and modeling, she will investigate temperature and land use change impacts on tropical forests and CO2 concentrations. Stephanie is a Jefferson Fellow (2015-2020) and a Presidential Fellow in Data Science (2016-2017).

Prior to UVA, Stephanie worked in Washington DC, Indonesia, Brazil and New York addressing climate change, ecosystem conservation and food security.
