Emilie Schnarr received a M.A. in Climate & Society from Columbia University in 2012. In the Climate & Society program, she studied the physical science basis of climate change and focused specifically on climate change law and environmental policy. The interrelatedness of climate change and agriculture is one of her recent interests and she looks forward to developing her knowledge in this field of study.
In 2011, Emilie graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a B.S. in Environmental Systems (Ecology, Behavior, & Evolution). During her undergraduate career at UCSD, she was a member of the Women’s Swim Team and a flute player in the Wind Ensemble.
She was also a research intern at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where she conducted a feeding selectivity study of the yellowtail damselfish sampled from various reef habitats surrounding the island of Moorea in French Polynesia.
In her free time, Emilie enjoys running and swimming in oceans of various coastlines around the world, from Moorea to the beautiful beaches of La Jolla and Big Sur!
