Climate Science Alliance Welcomes Two New Additions to the Team


The Climate Science Alliance team is excited to welcome two new additions — Lindsey Jasperse and Connor Magee. Learn more about new transitions for the Alliance team in today’s blog.

The Climate Science Alliance is ever evolving to meet the needs of our community. Thank-you all for your continued support and join us in welcoming two of our new team mates.

 

Meet Lindsey Jasperse!

Joining the team as the Science Program Manager is Lindsey Jasperse, who just recently obtained her Masters in Climate Science and Policy at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD.

Lindsey is passionate about leveraging science as a tool for communicating the impacts of climate change, informing policy, and creating interdisciplinary partnerships. She believes that building climate resilience happens when diverse communities connect with each other to create integrative solutions. While working with Daily Acts organization, she realized the power of community engagement to facilitate grassroots action and local resilience. Wanting to gain more experience in this field, she studied environmental science, policy, and ethics at the University of Portland. After graduating, Lindsey began working with the Center of Western Weather and Water Extremes, helping monitor and communicate the impacts of California’s extreme precipitation events. As a Climate Science and Policy graduate student at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, she studied the interface between science and communications. Her graduate thesis used downscaled climate modeling to quantify the value of San Diego’s agricultural lands. The project aimed to protect these lands for their ability to sequester carbon and provide multiple co-benefits throughout the region. She hopes to continue the Climate Science Alliance’s efforts in fostering a network of empowering partners at the forefront of protecting the region’s natural and human communities.
