Oxford Climate Research Network are pleased to announce our Annual Lecture with Kirsten Zickfeld, who will be speaking on the topic of ‘The climate impacts of carbon dioxide removal and their implications for net zero’.
Dr. Kirsten Zickfeld is a Distinguished Professor of Climate Science in the Geograph Department at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Vancouver, British Columbia. She holds a PhD in physics (2004) from the University of Potsdam in Germany.
Dr. Zickfeld’s research interests lie generally in the area of climate change science, with focus on the long-term effects of human activities on climate and climate-carbon cycle interactions. She is internationally recognized for her research on the irreversibility of human-induced climate change, carbon budgets consistent with climate targets and the effects of carbon dioxide removal on the carbon cycle and climate.
Dr. Zickfeld served as Lead Author for the Working Group I contribution to the Sixth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as well as for the IPCC Special Report on the Global Warming of 1.5 degrees. She is a member of the Expert Panel on Understanding and Leveraging Canadian Carbon Sinks and of the Scientific Steering Committee of the Global Carbon Project. Dr. Zickfeld was awarded the President’s Prize of the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society and the SFU President’s Prize for Leadership in Sustainability.
