Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Emily Burchfield

October 22 (Thursday) 1:30pm – 3:00pm, Online Seminar: Cultivating Food Security in a Changing World with Dr. Emily Burchfield, Assistant Professor of Environmental Sciences and Honors Program Coordinator, Emory University: Agriculture has radically transformed—and is being radically transformed by—the environment.  In this talk, Dr. Burchfield explores the interactions between agriculturally-driven land use change, climate change, and agricultural production in the United States.  Her research integrates “big” geospatial datasets with “deep” qualitative data to understand agroecological system dynamics at multiple scales.  Dr. Burchfield received her BA from Clemson University and was a Duckenfield Scholar while at Clemson. She states, “It’s hard to articulate how much my time at Clemson transformed my life.”
