CPBIS Researcher Dr. Marilyn Brown Nobel Laureate

Marilyn A. Brown, Professor, School of Public Policy, has been designated a Nobel Laureate. She was one of three GT faculty members who were a part of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 jointly with Al Gore. As a member of IPCC Working Group III, Brown produced special reports on Aviation, Emission Scenarios, Technology Transfer, Ozone and Climate, CO2 Capture and Storage, as well as the Third and Fourth Assessment Reports. This work provided the foundation for the current recognition of IPCC as an authoritative voice on the climate system, and the impacts of climate change.

Professor Brown and her doctoral student, Nilgun Atamturk, with the support of CPBIS, are conducting a study of potential impacts of energy and climate policies on the U. S. pulp and paper industry.  Their report is expected January 2008.
