Assistant professor, Energy and Resources Group
Phone: (510) 642-3465
Expertise: Climate change, environmental economics, environmental policy, economics of climate change. Anthoff is an environmental economist who studies climate change and environmental policy. He co-developed the integrated assessment model FUND that is used widely in academic research and in policy analysis.
Daniel M. Kammen
Professor, Energy and Resources Group & Goldman School of Public Policy, and director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL)
Phone: (510) 643-2243 (RAEL) or 642-1139
Expertise: Developing and employing renewable, appropriate sources of energy to reduce energy costs and boost efficiency, cultural context and social impacts of new technologies and resource management systems, climate change policy. Kammen directs research programs on energy supply, transmission, smart grid and low-carbon energy systems, life-cycle impacts of transportation options, including electrified vehicles and land-use planning; and on energy for community development in Africa, Asia and Latin America. He serves as a fellow of the U. S. State Department’s Energy and Climate Partnership for the Americas (ECPA), and is a coordinating lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007.
Assistant professor, Energy and Resources Group, and faculty scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Expertise: Kueppers' research focuses on ecological responses and feedbacks to climate change. She uses field experiments and observations, as well as models, to understand climate-ecosystem interactions in forests and agricultural ecosystems. Kueppers is deputy director of Next Generation Ecosystem Experiments—Tropics, a long-term, multi-institution project funded by the Department of Energy to better understand and project tropical forest feedbacks to climate change.
Professor, Energy and Resources Group & Ecosystem Sciences Division in the College of Natural Resources
Expertise: Ecology, climate change, effects of human actions on biogeochemical processes, ecosystem structure and function, biodiversity and climate, climate-ecosystem linkages. Harte’s research interests span ecological field research, the theory of complex systems and policy analysis. Current interests include applying insights from information theory to the analysis of complex ecosystems and empirical investigation of climate-ecosystem feedback dynamics.
Co-head of the Climate and Carbon Sciences Program, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, & Adjunct Associate Professor, Energy and Resources Group
Phone: (510) 495-2223
Expertise: Natural carbon cycle, anthropogenic influence on the carbon cycle through land use and climate change, impacts on ecosystems and the services they provide to society. The focus of Margaret Torn’s work is carbon and nutrient cycling in terrestrial ecosystems and trace-gas flux between soil and atmosphere. She conduct’s research on soil carbon global change, and the impacts of human activities on ecosystem processes.
