Dr. Anna M. Michalak is a faculty member in the Department of Global Ecology of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Stanford, California, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University.  Prior to joining Carnegie, she was the Frank and Brooke Transue Faculty Scholar and Associate Professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her research interests primarily lie in two areas. She explores the impacts of climate change and extreme events on freshwater and coastal water quality via influences on nutrient delivery to, and on conditions within, water bodies. She also studies the cycling and emissions of greenhouse gases at the Earth surface at regional to global scales – scales directly relevant to informing climate science and policy – primarily through the use of atmospheric observations that provide the clearest constraints at these critical scales. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (nominated by NASA), the NSF CAREER award, the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors Outstanding Educator Award, and the Leopold Fellowship in environmental leadership. Dr. Michalak holds a B.Sc. from the University of Guelph, Canada, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Stanford.
