Johanna Jensen, Ph.D.
Hello! I am a recent Ph.D. graduate from Columbia University with a focus in forest ecology, tree growth, & climate change.
More than six years of experience in evaluating the impacts of climate change on forest communities. Experienced using quantitative statistics to assess forest carbon, resiliency, and regrowth in a changing climate. Passionate about implementing ecological data and theory to make a positive, impactful change that promotes the health of people and the planet.
My Ph.D. research examined Arctic treeline, or the transition zone between the boreal forest and Arctic tundra in Alaska, USA and Northwest Territories, Canada. I enjoy linking fieldwork to remote sensing tools so we may better understand this remote and extreme landscape. This research was a part of NASA's Arctic Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE). My Ph.D. advisors are Drs. Natalie Boelman and Kevin Griffin.
