Global Engagement 
Emily serves as a co-instructor in several Global Resource Systems’ courses, co-advises the Learning Community, and advises the campus chapter of UNICEF. Her curiosity and passion for natural resource systems, environment, agriculture, and food systems has led her to research and teaching opportunities across the world, including in Italy, Liberia, China, Peru, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Emily is involved in teaching as research (TAR) in the GLOBE program, and she is engaged in scholarship related to her technical interests in ecosystem service tradeoffs and opportunities in working, agricultural landscapes.
