Pamela Martin has been an assistant professor in the Department of Geophysical Sciences since 2003. She conducts research in environmental science, paleoclimatology (the study of past climate change) and the impact of food production on the environment. In 2006, Martin coauthored a study which looked at the importance of different dietary choices on per capita greenhouse gas emissions. In the course of the study she realized there was a gap in the data available to quantify the environmental, social and economic impacts of sustainable, regionalbased agriculture.
