Lindsey Sloat is a Research Associate II for the Land and Carbon Lab. The Land and Carbon Lab is focused on improving global monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions from the land sector. Lindsey brings her experience working at the intersection of climate change, agriculture and land-use to this new initiative.

Before joining WRI, Lindsey was a postdoc with Nathan Mueller at Colorado State University, where she focused on climate impacts to global croplands and climate adaptation. Before that, Lindsey was a postdoc with the Global Landscapes Initiative at the Institute on the Environment (University of Minnesota). There, she studied the health of global grazing lands and how changes in precipitation variability may affect the sustainable utilization of natural forages.

Lindsey holds a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Arizona. She completed the fieldwork for her dissertation at the Rocky Mountain Biological Lab in Gothic, Colorado. There, she measured carbon fluxes and plant functional traits in subalpine plant communities.

Lindsey lives in Lancaster, PA, with her Ecology Professor husband and imaginative young son. They enjoy spending time with their family, friends, and the Susquehanna River.
