Thank you to all of you who helped make the ESIP Summer meeting a success! Whether you organized a session, recruited speakers, spoke, moderated, or just showed up as much as you could – we really appreciate all that you gave to this community last week and are grateful.
With all of the excitement of the ESIP July/Summer Meeting, we haven’t officially shared some really exciting news. Dr. Lindsay Barbieri (Bar) has joined the ESIP Team as our Agriculture & Climate Fellow. Bar is a former ESIP Community Fellow and recently earned her PhD in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont. Over the next year, Bar will be furthering her research in the area of assessing and addressing data and information challenges and gaps related to climate-smart agriculture and nature-based solutions to climate change. She will be supporting the ESIP team and especially looking at ways to promote cross cluster collaboration in this area. This one year fellowship is funded in part by the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation. You can look forward to seeing Bar on monthly collaboration area calls. If your work intersects with this effort please feel free to reach out any time. You can reach her at email@example.com or on Slack.
Have a great week,
ESIP Executive Director
