Bio: Frances C. Moore is a Ciriacy-Wantrup Post-doctoral Fellow in the Department of Agriculture and Resource Economics at UC Berkeley. Her work bridges environmental science and economics in order to better understand climate change impacts and adaptation. Her PhD work focused on agriculture and on the development of new econometric and experimental methods to improve estimates of the rate and effectiveness of farmer adaptation. She has also worked to incorporate recent econometric results into Integrated Assessment Models in order to improve the empirical basis of social cost of carbon estimates. Earlier work focused on understanding the development of adaptation funding and policy within the international climate negotiations. Fran received her PhD from the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources at Stanford University in 2015. She also holds a Masters in Economics from Stanford, a Masters in Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and a BA., summa cum laude, in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University.
Fields of Interest: Social and economic impacts of climate change; agriculture and food-security; climate change policy and adaptation; environmental economics; econometrics; inference and decision-making under uncertainty; risk management; integrated assessment modeling; detection and attribution of climate change impacts.
