Carol Barford

Director and Associate Scientist, Nelson Institute for Environment Studies Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment; UW-Madison

Carol Barford is an associate scientist and the director of the Center for Sustainability and the Global Environment (SAGE). Her work centers on agriculture, food, environmental quality, and related risks.

Before joining SAGE, Barford completed a BA in biology and an MS in ecology at Boston University, and a PhD in environmental engineering at Harvard University. For her PhD thesis, Barford measured nitrogen stable isotope effects of denitrification and applied the results to track nitrous oxide production in agriculture and wastewater. Barford also held a postdoctoral position in atmospheric chemistry at Harvard, where she studied forest carbon cycling. Her synthesis of biometric and atmospheric methods of measuring forest carbon balance appeared in the journal Science.
