Description

The UW Center for Environmental Politics' Duck Family Colloquium Series welcomes Kimberly Carlson, Professor in the Department of Environmental Studies at New York University. Professor Carlson will be presenting a talk titled, "Do corporate commitments to zero-deforestation reduce forest loss? Modeling and mapping voluntary sustainability initiatives in tropical commodity supply chains" on Friday, April 10, 2020 from 12:00 to 1:30 in Gowen 1A.

Kimberly Carlson is an Assistant Professor at New York University’s Dept. of Environmental Studies. Carlson holds a PhD in Forestry and Environmental Studies from Yale University and a BS in Biology from Stanford University. She was a post-doc at the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Hawaii’s Dept. of Natural Resources and Environmental Management. Her interdisciplinary research addresses the drivers of tropical agricultural land use, the relationships between agricultural land use and ecosystem processes, and the governance interventions that aim to mitigate agriculture’s perceived negative impacts. She collaborates with academics, civil society organizations, and commodity companies to ensure that her work advances fundamental scientific knowledge in the field of land systems science while informing decisions about how to enhance the sustainable and equitable management of agriculture.
