More About The Presenters
Dr. Andrew Reinmann will share his research findings on the potential of trees in residential areas to boost carbon uptake and how land-use and fragmentation can impact growth rates and sensitivity of trees and forests to climate change. Dr. Reinmann is an ecologist and biogeochemist with research interests in the terrestrial carbon cycle. He is an Assistant Professor at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center and Hunter College.

Dr. Susan Cook-Patton will describe her recent paper, “Lower cost and more feasible options to restore forest cover in the contiguous United States for climate mitigation [cell.com]” and the associated “evolving tool” based on the research, the Reforestation Hub (reforestationhub.org). Dr. Cook-Patton is a Senior Forest Restoration Specialist on the Natural Climate Solutions Science Team at The Nature Conservancy. She works to quantify the climate mitigation potential of reforestation and other natural climate solutions and infuse the best-available science into policy decisions.
