Frances C. Moore is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy at UC Davis, working at the intersection of environmental economics and climate science. Her research seeks to improve our understanding of the economic and social impacts of climate change and to better understand our ability to adapt to those impacts. To do this She combines econometric analysis, experimental approaches, climate model output, and economic modeling. Earlier work focused on understanding the development of adaptation funding and policy within the international climate negotiations. Fran received her PhD from the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources at Stanford University in 2015.
