Anna Michalak

Faculty Member, Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution for Science

Anna Michalak views climate change as a water quality, and not simply a water quantity, issue. As a faculty member in Global Ecology at the Carnegie Institution for Science and associate professor in the Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental sciences, Michalak’s research explores the impacts of climate change and extreme events on coastal and freshwater quality. A second area of focus is the use of atmospheric observations for detecting, quantifying, and understanding patterns of emissions of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide and methane.

Michalak is a Leopold Leadership Fellow, and the recipient of a Presidential Early Career Award in Science and Engineering. Michalak earned an M.S. and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford University.
