Emily Dionizio is a GHG Protocol Specialist in the Forests, Land Use, and Agriculture Program at WRI Brasil.

With 12 years of experience in carbon cycling, Emily began her career at the National Institute for Space Research - INPE, where she worked on projects to model vegetation dynamics in natural ecosystems. Throughout her scientific journey, she engaged in interdisciplinary projects focusing on the relationships between carbon stocks and changes in land use and land cover in natural and agricultural ecosystems in the Amazon and Cerrado biomes, as well as exploring emissions mitigation solutions for the agricultural and mining sectors.

In her latest position at the Vale Technological Institute - ITV, Emily developed tools and methods to estimate the amount of carbon emissions and removals due to land use and land cover changes, aligning with the Draft GHG Protocol Land Sector. Her research involved forest inventory management, carbon stock estimates, development of GHG emissions and removal inventory, and identification of challenges and opportunities for the corporate sector in light of the Draft GHG Protocol Land Sector.

Emily holds a degree in Biology, with a Master's and Ph.D. in Applied Meteorology from the Federal University of Viçosa - UFV, focusing on land use changes, carbon cycle, and sustainable agriculture, and a specialization in Skills for the Green Transition from the University of Cambridge Judge Business School.
