Her research includes the risks associated with geological carbon storage, the potential for energy efficiency to reduce emissions in the US, the cost of forest sequestration, and understanding energy use within cities. She was awarded the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions fellowship to test how agriculture and forestry land-use policies affect carbon storage.
