  • Research Affiliate at Stanford


  • Stanford University


Frances C. Moore finished her Ph.D. in 2015. Her research focuses on understanding the rate and effectiveness of adaptation by farmers in order to understand the impact of climate change on future agricultural production and food security. She combines statistical and mathematical modeling with agricultural data and climate model output in order to better understand how farmers will respond to a changing climate, drawing heavily on economics and econometric methods.

Before Stanford, Fran obtained a Masters in Environmental Science at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies where her research focussed on the construction of adaptation policy in the international negotiations. She observed and participated in several of the UNFCCC meetings, culminating in COP15 in Copenhagen.

Dr. Moore is currently a Co-Principal Investigator of the NSF award with INFEWS: Monitoring and managing food, energy, and water systems under stress: California.
