A Geographer and Environmental Scientist by training, Carolina Adler (née Roman) joined the Environmental Philosophy Group as Research Fellow in late 2011. Earlier in 2010, she obtained her PhD at Monash University (Australia), focusing on climate impacts, values, vulnerability, and adaptation using policy sciences. The relevance and significance of her work to policy applications was demonstrated by an invitation to join the Society for Policy Scientists, as well as being awarded with the 2010 Harold D. Lasswell Prize for best dissertation in the field of public policy. Carolina’s pragmatic research interests and activities centre on problems of policy relevance, focusing on the effects and challenges of global change in society. Her current research collaborations and consulting activities address climate change adaptation, vulnerability and resilience, the use of scientific evidence in policy, and co-production of knowledge with society. Other interests include: the role of public opinion in shaping policy processes, adaptive governance, decision-making under uncertainty, systemic reviews/assessments/evaluations, mountain regions, and inter- transdisciplinary collaborations.
