Isabel Wargowsky analyzes flux measurements of carbon dioxide and methane across the Arctic-Boreal regions for display in a public geospatial database. This database will help researchers and policy makers better understand how the Arctic-Boreal region is being impacted by climate change, and what can be done to mitigate these effects.
Prior to joining Woodwell, Wargowsky studied savanna ecology and plant physiology, receiving both her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Ecology from the University of Georgia. Building on her expertise in ecology, plant physiology, and data management, Wargowsky continued work at UGA and discovered her passion for learning about GIS and remote sensing.
Wargowsky has always been passionate about environmental protection and mitigating the effects of climate change, and she is excited to work on a project that improves our understanding of the Arctic as a critical and highly-threatened ecosystem. In her free time, she loves to sculpt, spend time with her dog, and tend to her numerous houseplants.
