About the Creator
Dr. Stephanie Arcusa is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at Arizona State University She received a Bachelor’s degree in Earth Sciences from University College Cork, Ireland, a Master’s degree in Climate Science from the University of Bern, Switzerland, and a doctorate in Climate and Environmental Change from Northern Arizona University, USA. As a paleoclimatologist, Stephanie reconstructed changes in the environment (e.g. wildfire, floods, dust …) as it responds to climatic changes (e.g., temperature, precipitation…) through time. In this work, Stephanie also saw the fingerprint of human activities on the climate and the environment and this has led her to decide to transition her career to help stop the change in climate occurring today due to human activities. Her work now consists of developing ways to halt climate change. Over her academic training, Stephanie has led or been part of various projects that further emission reduction at the local, city, and higher education levels.
