Jennifer Burney’s work focuses on the relationships between climate and food security – measuring air pollutant emissions and concentrations, quantifying the effects of climate and air pollution on land use and food systems, understanding how food production and consumption contribute to climate change, and designing and evaluating technologies and strategies for adaptation and mitigation among the world’s farmers. She earned a Ph.D. in physics in 2007, completed postdoctoral fellowships in both food security and climate science, and joined the UC San Diego faculty in 2012. She was named a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2011.
