Kathryn Grace Publishes Work in Nature Climate Change
Congratulations to Kathryn Grace, Assistant Professor in GES and MGIS Faculty member, who recently had her groundbreaking research published in Nature Climate Change! Considering climate in studies of fertility and reproductive health in poor countries examines how factors related to fertility such as population size, composition and growth rate may influence a community’s ability to adapt to climate change, particularly in poor countries. [Her work] describes theories and analytic strategies that can link climate to reproductive health outcomes. This is also a notable accomplishment as health/population geography topics rarely get published in Nature Climate Change. Dr. Grace is a welcome addition to the MGIS faculty given her research interests in spatial analysis and statistics, health, demography, food insecurity and population-environment interactions.
