Oceanids Sounding Board

Thursday May 5, 2016

Jennifer A. Burney, PhD

"Quantifying and Addressing the Widespread Impacts of Air Pollution"

Assistant Professor, School of Global Policy and Strategy, University of California, San Diego

Dr. Burney is an environmental scientist whose research focuses on simultaneously achieving global food security and mitigating climate change. She designs, implements and evaluates technologies for poverty alleviation and agricultural adaptation, and studies the links between “energy poverty” — the lack of access to modern energy services — and food or nutrition security, the mechanisms by which energy services can help alleviate poverty, the environmental impacts of food production and consumption, and climate impacts on agriculture.

Much of her current research focuses on the developing world, and she is particularly interested in the science, technology and policy of short-lived climate pollutants, or SLCPs, and the role that mitigation of these compounds can play in meeting both climate and food security objectives.

She is a research affiliate at UC San Diego’s Policy Design and Evaluation Laboratory, a fellow at the Center on Food Security & the Environment at Stanford University and member of the National Geographic Explorers family. She leads the Science Policy Fellows Program at the School. 

Sounding Board is a series of seven lectures during the academic year, the first Thursday at 12 noon, sponsored by UC San Diego Oceanids and the UC San Diego Faculty Club. Oceanids, faculty and friends meet at the UCSD Faculty Club in a specially designated room to eat lunch and listen to fascinating speakers. Lunch is $14.00 for guests and $10.00 for Faculty Club members (purchase required).  Coffee and iced tea are provided in the meeting room.  A parking permit can be obtained at the front desk.  You can be sure of a lively discussion! You do not need to RSVP. Contact Judy Vacquier, jvacq@sbcglobal.net for more information.
