讲座主题:Fluid Connections: Keeping our Oceans and Seas Healthy for All

讲者:莫妮卡•麦克德威特联合国环境署政策执行司副司长

时间:201768日 上午10:30-11:30

地点;综合楼902

讲者简介:


莫妮卡·麦克德威特博士是一个环境生理学家,研究植物在严酷恶劣环境下的适应性反应,尤其是在低温和冷冻环境的应力。莫妮卡获曼尼托巴大学理学学士和理学硕士学位(植物生物技术)、萨斯喀彻温大学博士学位(作物生理),还在不列颠哥伦比亚大学负责过博士后基因工程研究。她的研究经验,以及从应用生理学和发育遗传学的角度了解生物如何应对环境压力,为她研究环境变化对生态系统和人类福祉的影响提供了基础。莫妮卡曾被任命为位于英国剑桥的联合国环境规划署世界保护监测中心副主任。目前担任联合国环境署政策执行司副司长。

在过去的20年里,她曾在南非、印度和科威特主持过工作,包括将南极鱼类抗冻蛋白的基因编码转移到植物;筛选林业生产系统低温胁迫耐性;管理空间信息决策支持系统在农业、生物多样性以及沿海和海洋开发领域的发展;评估国际研究关于人类健康的影响,以及对科威特石油火灾污染地下水的建议;协调多机构环境研究的伙伴关系,并服务于一个审查欧洲生物多样性信息研究所的国际性团队。在2002年加入联合国环境署之前,她创办了一个私营技术管理咨询公司。

她的专业领域包括技术前瞻,以及通过促进科学与组织动力学的整合来支持知情环境决策——即如何让机构和政府的决策者在科学基础上做出恰当的环境决策。

LECTURE NOTICE

Topic: Fluid Connections: Keeping our Oceans and Seas Healthy for All

SpeakerDr.Monika MacDevette

Deputy Director, Ecosystems Division, United Nations Environment Programme

Time&Date: 10:30-11:30 am, 8th June, 2017

Venue: Rm 902 Zonghe Building

About the speaker

Dr Monika MacDevette is an environmental physiologist having studied the adaptive responses of plants to harsh and stressful environments, particularly low temperature and freezing stress. Monika obtained her BSc and MSc (Plant Biotechnology) from the University of Manitoba, and PhD (Crop Physiology) from the University of Saskatchewan and conducted post-doctoral research at the University of British Columbia in genetic engineering. Her experience in research, and the application of physiology and developmental genetics to understanding how living things cope with environmental stresses, provides the basis for her interests into the impacts of environmental change on ecosystems and human well-being. Monika was recently the Deputy Director of the UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre at Cambridge, UK. She is currently serving as the Deputy Director of Ecosystems Division at UN Environment headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. 

Over the past 20 years, she has worked in South Africa, India and Kuwait where she has played a leading role in programmes including: the transfer of genes coding for Antarctic fish anti-freeze proteins into plants; screening for low temperature stress tolerance in forestry production systems; managing the development of spatial information decision support systems in the fields of agriculture, biodiversity and coastal and marine development; assessing international research proposals on the human health impacts, and on groundwater contamination from the oil fires in Kuwait; coordinating multi-institutional environmental research partnerships; and serving on an international team to review the performance of a European biodiversity information institute. She established and operated a private technology management consulting company in Cape Town prior to working with UNEP since 2002.

Her professional interests include technology foresight, and fostering the integration of science with organizational dynamics to support informed environmental decision-making - how to get smart people in institutions and government to make good environmental decisions based on sound science.
