About the Speaker: Dr. Ernst holds a Ph.D. in environment and climate sciences and an M.S. in geography with a minor in environmental policy from the University of Tennessee, as well as a Bachelor's in geography and sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her research focuses on resilience and adaptation planning in urban, energy, and water systems and on public lands. Specifically, she studies the creation and use of information for adaptation and resilience decision-making, evaluates the types of adaptation and resilience actions that are taken, and studies ways to identify and act upon opportunities that create co-benefits and synergies across sectors rather than negative consequences or tradeoffs. Kathleen has conducted research at the Urban Dynamics and Climate Change Sciences Institutes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory; at the Stockholm Environment Institute in Stockholm, Sweden; and most recently in Norrköping, Sweden as a U.S. Department of State Fulbright Scholar.
