International Advisory Panel

Global change science is inherently international. (CR)2 associate researchers have a distinctive record of collaboration with counterparts abroad as shown in joint projects and papers, and as participants in international committees and scientific bodies. This is also reflected in the interest and enthusiasm we found when asking leading scientists around the world to collaborate with us as members of our international Advisory Panel, or Scientific Panel, and our International Network of Collaboration.

We are very proud to count in our international Advisory Panel, in alphabetical order:

  • Dr. David Battisti, Tamaki Chair and Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Washington, USA.
  • Dr. Guy Brasseur, Director of the Climate Service Center, Germany
  • Dr. Mark Howden, Theme Leader – Adaptive Primary Industries, Enterprises and Communities, CSIRO, Australia.
  • Dr. Carlos Nobre, Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais, Centro de Ciência do Sistema Terrestre (CST), Brazil
  • Dr. Karen O’Brien, Professor at the Department of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo, Norway
  • Dr. Mary Scholes, Professor in the School of Animal, Plant and Environmental Sciences and Assistant Dean for Postgraduate Studies in the Faculty of Science, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.
  • Dr. Tong Zhu, Chair Professor of Environmental Sciences, Cheung Kong Scholar Program at Peking University, China.

In addition of being world scientific leaders in their fields of expertise in natural and social science, they all have a vast experience in interdisciplinary research, and they act as advisors for policy makers at the highest levels in their own countries and internationally. They have kindly committed to provide guidance to our leading team of principal investigators, to promote collaboration between (CR)2 and other centers around the world, and participating in our annual meetings, and in activities involving students and stakeholders.
