Christina Greene

Institute of the Environment Fellow
School of Geography and Development

After several years working for the United Nations on landmine clearance programs across Africa, Christina Greene returned to graduate school to pursue her interests in human-environment relationships. A PhD student in the School of Geography and Development, Christina is interested in the intersection of climate change and food security. Her research focuses on the political, economic and cultural processes that shape the impacts of extreme weather on people’s ability to access food. She will be specifically investigating the ways in which droughts within the United States and Ethiopia are contextualized in a global food system increasingly characterized by volatile food prices.
