Kristi Burkholder joins the ENV program after serving as a visiting lecturer at Wellesley College and Bentley University, where she taught classes in global climate change.
Kristi Burkholder's research interests focus on large scale oceanic circulations. Specifically, her work investigates the ways in which ocean currents (including the Gulf Stream) transport heat and salt to high latitudes.
