Ms. Erin MacDonald is a member of the Arctic carbon monitoring team. Her current work involves synthesizing data that will be incorporated into a circumpolar model that will predict how fires, permafrost thaw, and associated carbon emissions may respond to, and contribute towards, future warming from climate change. Previously, she worked as a research assistant for peatland and aquatic biogeochemical labs.
