Adapting to Climate Change: Global Agriculture and Trade

Roxana Julia is an Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Economics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  Her research focuses on the examination and modeling of relationships between natural and socio-economic systems, and the evaluation of related policies.  Recent research papers evaluate trade as an adaptation to the impacts of climate change on agriculture, the impacts of invasive species on economic systems, and the role of technology in the extraction and availability of non-renewable resources. Previously, she published in the areas of public finance and labor economics and worked as a statistician at the Rockefeller Institute of Government.  She received a Ph.D. in Ecological Economics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, an M.S. in Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology from the University of Idaho, and a B.S. in Agricultural Engineering from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.  Before becoming an ecological economist, she conducted research in plant physiology and directed urban community gardens for the government of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
