Dr. Anna M. Michalak is a faculty member in the Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science and an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. She studies the cycling and emissions of greenhouse gases at urban to global scales – scales directly relevant to informing climate and policy – primarily through the use of atmospheric observations. She is also interested in climate change impacts on freshwater and coastal water quality. Her approach is focused on the development of spatiotemporal statistical data fusion methods that optimize the use of limited data. She co-led the development of the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan, and her work has resulting in over 100 peer-reviewed publications.
