Dr. Kirsten Zickfeld is an assistant professor in the Department of Geography in the Faculty of Environment at SFU, and an adjunct professor in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at UVic. She is a climate scientist with a particular interest in anthropogenic climate change. Her current research focuses on the interactions between climate and the carbon cycle and the century-scale response of the climate system to greenhouse gas emissions. She is also interested in the emissions implications of long-term climate targets such as limiting global mean warming to below 2 °C, a climate target adopted by many countries.

 

Dr. Erica Frank is a professor in the School of Population and Public Health, and the Department of Family Practice at UBC. Dr. Frank is a Canada Research Chair in Preventive Medicine and Population Health. She specializes in preventive medicine, and her research emphasizes the degree to which a clinician’s positive health habits influence patients’ positive health habits. Dr. Frank is also the Founder and President of Next Generation University (NextGenU.org, the world’s first free university), and Past President (2008) of Physicians for Social Responsibility.
