Amy Swan is a Research Associate at the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory at Colorado State University. She has worked on a variety of research projects that evaluate the impacts of agricultural management and land use change on greenhouse gas cycling in ecosystems. She has contributed to the EPA National Greenhouse Gas Inventory for the last several years, as well as supported development of web-based tools to estimate greenhouse gas emissions from farms in the U.S. and sustainable land management projects in the developing world. Ms. Swan has extensive experience applying the Century Ecosystem Model to a variety of agricultural ecosystems. In her MSc thesis research, she evaluated the socio-economic and environmental factors that affect adoption of carbon sequestering agricultural conservation practices in the U.S. and nitrous oxide emissions associated with those practices.
