Dr. Cameron Wake - Josephine A. Lamprey Professor in Climate and Sustainability at the University of New Hampshire

Dr. Cameron Wake on Denali

Dr. Cameron Wake is the Josephine A. Lamprey Professor in Climate and Sustainability at the UNH Sustainability Institute and Director of Climate Solutions New England. In this role, he provides leadership to engage the University community in efforts to pursue a sustainable energy future through emissions reduction policies, practices, research, and education. Specifically, he: 

Dr. Wake is also currently the faculty director of the Sustainability Dual Major.

A Research Associate Professor in Glaciology/Environmental Chemistry at the UNH Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space and the College of Engineering & Physical Sciences' Department of Earth Sciences, Dr. Wake directs an active research program investigating regional climate and environmental change through the analysis of ice cores, and instrumental and phonological records. He is leads research programs to assess the impact of climate change in New England and to reconstruct climate change from ice cores recovered from glaciers on the Tibetan Plateau and in the Arctic. He is also an author on over 60 papers published in the peer-reviewed scientific literature, including authorship on a series of papers and reports detailing the impact of climate change in the Northeast US.

Dr. Matthew Huber, University of New Hampshire Professor of
Climatology, Climate Dynamics, Impacts Prediction
Joint Appointment Dept. of Earth Sciences

Dr. Huber's research focuses on past, present and future climate: the mechanisms thaDr. Matthew Hubert govern climate, the different forms that climates can take on Earth, and the relationship between climate change and life. 

Major research areas include: the radiative and dynamical processes generating tropical "thermostats", polar amplification of warming, and the ecological and evolutionary implications of these processes and patterns.  This work draws on atmosphere-ocean dynamics, paleoceanography, geology, paleontology, and computer modeling.

In his work toward understanding the "greenhouse" climates of the Palogene, he applies state-of-the-art global climate models to address fundamental questions such as:
- Where was deep water formed in the Eocene, and how much heat was transported in the atmosphere and ocean?
- Are there multiple equilibria/catastrophes in the thermohaline circulation, as posited both by modelers and paleoceanographers alike?
- Are there mechanisms ("thermostats") for tropical temperature regulation?

After earning his Ph.D. in Earth Sciences at University of California Santa Cruz, he worked as Asst. Research Professor at the University of Copenhagen Neils Bohr Institute, and as Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Purdue University.

Dr. Tom Kelly, Chief Sustainability Officer, University of New Hampshire Sustainability Institute

Dr. Tom Kelly

Dr. Tom Kelly is the founding director of the UNH Sustainability Institute and the Chief Sustainability Officer. Dr. Kelly collaborates with faculty, staff, students and community members in the development of policies, programs and practices related to the Sustainability Institute’s four educational initiatives in biodiversity, climate, culture, and food

Co-editor and co-author of "The Sustainable Learning Community: One University's Journey to the Future" (2009), Dr. Kelly has been working in the field of higher education and sustainability for more than twenty years in the US and abroad. Current activities include working with UNH colleagues and many related partners on projects across the university’s curriculum, operations, research and engagement (CORE) activities; examples include regional approaches to sustainable food and energy systems, incubating sustainability science, the central place of culture in sustainability and sustainability education and pedagogy. Dr. Kelly was a founding member of the Northeast Campus Sustainability Consortium and the Inter-institutional Network for Food and Agricultural Sustainability (INFAS). He currently collaborates with Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and Second Nature on curricular and pedagogical innovation through the design and facilitation of regional symposia of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) and the annual curriculum convocation of the AASHE national conference. In addition, Dr. Kelly was a principle designer and facilitator of Sustainability Unbound, a two-day, “advanced track” offered at the 2012 AASHE national conference in Los Angeles. 

Dr. Kelly was a visiting scholar at the Center for U.S.-Mexican Studies at the University of California San Diego, and a visiting professor of trans-boundary environmental issues in the U.S.-Mexican borderlands at El Colegio de Mexico, Mexico DF.  In addition to an undergraduate and master's degree in musical composition and conducting, he holds a Ph.D. in International Relations from the Tufts University Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.

Jennifer Andrews, UNH Sustainability Institute

Jenn came to the UNH Sustainability Institute in 2014 from Clean Air-Cool Planet, where she worked for 13 years promoting practical climate solutions for colleges and universities as well as municipalities and businesses. During her tenure there she served as Acting Executive Director; coordinated programs across the municipal, corporate and higher education sectors; helped to launch, oversee and continually develop the Campus Carbon Calculator, to the point where it has become an indispensable carbon management and sustainability tool for hundreds of colleges and universities across North America and the globe; and she managed the Climate Fellows program since its inception as well, which places exceptional graduate students or recent grads from institutions across the U.S. with partner organizations to jump-start cutting-edge climate change mitigation and adaptation projects.

She holds a B.A in English and an M.A. in mental health, both from the University of New Hampshire. Before CA-CP, she did work in public radio, and as an historic and environmental educator for children.

Jenn is involved in the UNHSI University-wide Energy and Ecosystem task forces, and has long worked as an advisor to both the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) and the Billion Dollar Green Challenge since their inceptions. 

Elisabeth "El" Farrell has worked with the Sustainability Institute at UNH for over a decade, managing projects and initiatives related to sustainable food systems, culture and sustainability, energy and climate change, and biodiversity. She has played a key role in the development and implementation of many Institute endeavors, including the New Hampshire Farm to School Program, Food Solutions New England, the book "The Sustainable Learning Community: One University's Journey to the Future" (2009), the Dual Major in EcoGastronomy, and the development of UNH's forthcoming Dual Major in Sustainability. She has extensive event organizing experience, including annual New England Food Summits, symposia such as Sustainability Unbound and Eating as a Moral Act, and many others. El serves as the network coordinator for Food Solutions New England (FSNE) and is working in a similar capacity with FSNE’s sister initiative, Climate Solutions New England (CSNE). She is involved in each of the UNHSI University-wide task forces, a member of the UNH Dual Major in EcoGastronomy steering committee, and a member of the Fish Locally Collaborative.

El is presently a student in the UNH Master of Public Administration program and the graduate Certificate in Sustainability Politics and Policy. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in writing and literature from the Bennington College Writing Seminars and a bachelor's degree in anthropology from the University of New Hampshire.
