Dr. Johanne Pelletier is a quantitative ecologist working on forests and woodlands in the context of global change, with an interest in the effect of human activities on woody ecosystems and their link to climate change. She is currently an Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future research fellow where she explores the linkages between forests, energy and climate change in Zambia. The goal of her research contribution is to improve our understanding of the impacts of human interactions with terrestrial ecosystems through land-use/cover change, with the goal of mitigating climate change, sustaining ecosystem services and improving the livelihoods of forest-dependent people. She earned her PhD at McGill University (Canada) and with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Panama). She also worked as postdoctoral fellow at the Woods Hole Research Center on a REDD+ pilot project in the Democratic Republic of Congo and on a NASA SERVIR project on forest carbon assessment for Eastern and Southern Africa.
