Environment and Resources

Emma Krasovich Southworth

Emma is a PhD student in Environment and Resources at Stanford University’s Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER). She is co-advised by Professor Marshall Burke (Sustainability) and Professor Erin Mordecai (Biology). Emma is interested in exploring how we can manage natural resources in a way that co-optimizes health and environmental outcomes in the context of global change. As part of EchoLab, she currently focuses on measuring the impact of wildfires on chemical exposures in smoke. In the Mordecai Lab, her current research explores the relationship between land use, migration, climate change, and vectorborne disease. Prior to Stanford, Emma worked at the Global Policy Lab at UC Berkeley with Professor Solomon Hsiang, where she quantified agricultural pollution in national-scale water systems. She completed her MPH in global and environmental health at Columbia University and received a BA in neuroscience from Colgate University. When she isn’t at her desk, you can find her outside - most likely running or hiking up a mountain.
