Dr. Joanna C. Carey is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Science at Babson College, located just outside of Boston, MA. At Babson, Joanna currently teaches Introduction to Oceanography, and Unintended Consequences: At the Interface of Business and the Environment. Joanna's research focuses on answering fundamental questions regarding ecosystem processes in the context of rapid global change. Specifically, she examines how global change is altering nutrient cycling along the land-ocean continuum, with a focus on wetland, river, forest, and tundra ecosystems. After completing her Ph.D. in Earth Science from Boston University (2013), she was awarded an NSF Earth Science post-doctoral fellowship to study climate change in Alaska at the Marine Biological Laboratory, in Woods Hole, MA. Joanna completed her M.S. in Environmental Science from Yale University (2007), and her B.S. in Environmental Policy & Planning from Virginia Tech (2005). She has given invited lectures at multiple institutions and international professional meetings, including a recent keynote in Vienna, Austria at the European Geophysical Union annual meeting.
