Rachael Garrett

Assistant Professor, ETH Zurich

More

Dr. Garrett’s research examines interactions between land use, ecosystem services, and economic development at multiple spatial and temporal scales to better understand the drivers and impacts of land change and the effectiveness of existing conservation and agricultural policies. She is particularly interested in how commodity supply chains interact with environmental institutions to shape land use processes, resource distribution, and trade. The applied outcomes of this work are the identification of policies, technologies, and market solutions that will help feed a growing world population without compromising the well-being of future generations. She is particularly interested in ways that we can scale up sustainable practices in commercial farming systems, which occupy a majority of the world’s land base.

Robert Walker

Professor of Latin American Studies and Geography, University of Florida

More

Dr. Robert Walker earned his PhD in Regional Science at the University of Pennsylvania in 1984. He is currently Professor of Latin American Studies and Geography at the University of Florida. He served as economist at the International Institute of Tropical Forestry (U.S. Forest Service) in Puerto Rico, 1991-1993, and has taught at the Federal University of Pará, in Belém, Brazil, at the mouth of the Amazon River. Dr. Walker studies the manner in which ranchers, loggers, and peasant farmers impact their forest environment. In conducting his research, he has traveled thousands of miles on dirt roads crisscrossing the Amazon Basin. In 2010, he and two Brazilian colleagues transited the entire Transamazon Highway to its terminus on the Purus River, Amazonas State. Dr. Walker’s travels have afforded him the privilege of encountering a number of the region’s indigenous peoples, including the Arara, the Kararaô, the Kayapó, and the Munduruku. Dr. Walker is an environmentalist, and his primary concern is the current Brazilian plan to build mega-dams on the Tapajós River, the homeland of the Muduruku tribe.
