Jenny Goldstein is currently a postdoctoral associate with the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, based in the Science and Technology Studies Dept. In 2015, she received her PhD in Geography from UCLA. She is broadly interested in the relationships between economic development, tropical land use, and climate change politics. She has conducted qualitative research on the history of socio-ecological landscape change following large-scale agricultural development in Central Kalimantan (Indonesia). She is currently working on two projects: one looks at the relationship between the politics of peatland fires in Indonesia and trans-boundary air pollution across Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. The other is on the uses and impacts of satellite-based environmental monitoring for conservation and development in Indonesia and Myanmar
Beginning July 2017, she will be an assistant professor in the department of Development Sociology.
