Sarah Walker (HDNR)
Assistant Professor: Warner College of Natural Resources, HDNR Dept.
Dr. Sarah Walker’s work is based on the idea that understanding human well-being is critical for designing environmental solutions that work for both people and nature. Her research and teaching centers on the belief that environmental solutions should prioritize social justice in both process and outcome. Broadly, Sarah conducts environmental social science – exploring and measuring the human well-being impacts of various environmental problems and interventions. Much of her work is focused on equitable climate adaptation, rural livelihoods and changing environments, and the health and well-being effects of nature immersion.
Andrea Baudoin Farah
Assistant Professor: Warner College of Natural Resources, ESS Dept.
Prior to her work at CSU, Farah spent time as a postdoctoral scholar working with NatCap on ecosystem services and scenarios in the Llanos de Moxos region in Beni, Bolivia. She is particularly interested in exploring ways to better integrate indigenous perceptions into assessments of ecosystem services. Andrea obtained her Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Ecology at the University of Florida, where she studied the relations between indigenous conceptions of autonomy and natural resource governance in the Bolivian Amazon. She holds an M.Sc in Agricultural Development and Compared Agriculture from AgroParisTech, France; a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education from the Universidad Mayor de San Andrés, Bolivia; and a double B.Sc in Agronomic Engineering from AgroParisTech and the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Scott Denning (ATS)
Professor: Walter Scott Jr. College of Engineering, Atmospheric Science Dept.
Professor Denning received his B.A. in Geological Sciences from the University of Maine in 1984, and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University in 1993 and 1994. He studied radiometric geochronology, surface water geochemistry, and mountain hydrology before becoming interested in global climate and biogeochemical dynamics. After a two-year postdoctoral appointment modeling global sources and sinks of atmospheric CO2, he spent two years as an Assistant Professor in the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California at Santa Barbara. He joined the Atmospheric Science faculty at CSU in 1998 and has served as Director of Education for CMMAP since 2006.
