Featuring Guest Speaker:
DR. KIRSTEN ZICKFELD – Dr. Kirsten Zickfeld is an Associate Professor in the Geography Department at Simon Fraser University, which she joined in September 2010. She holds a PhD (2004) from the University of Potsdam in Germany and conducted her doctoral research at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.
Dr. Zickfeld’s research is centered around investigating the long-term effects of human activities on climate. Specifically, she is interested in exploring the interactions between climate and the carbon cycle, and the reversibility of human-induced climate change. Dr. Zickfeld also investigates the emission implication of meeting climate targets, such as the 1.5°C and 2°C targets adopted by the Paris Agreement. She was among the first proponents of the carbon budget approach, which establishes a linear relationship between cumulative carbon dioxide emissions and global warming, now widely adopted in climate policy circles.
Dr. Zickfeld served as Lead Author for the recently released Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on Global Warming of 1.5 degrees and also serves a Lead Author for the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC (to be published 2021).
This event takes place on the traditional, unceded, occupied territories of the səlil̓wətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
