Klain completed her MSc and PhD at IRES with Kai Chan as her adviser and closely worked with Terre Satterfield.
Klain’s research at IRES on social and cultural dimensions of ecosystem services as well as risk perception and community engagement associated with renewable energy projects was an excellent springboard to build her career based on conservation and climate change mitigation. She’s currently an Assistant Professor in Environment & Society at Utah State University. She and her students are doing research on ecologically regenerative renewable energy and weaving indigenous, local and western scientific knowledge for rewilding.
