Bodie uses interdisciplinary approaches to understand land-based solutions to climate change and how innovative technology can enable beneficial land management. At present, he is working on understanding forest carbon outcomes, both in California and East Africa, and the impacts that new technology can have in mitigating emissions. Bodie is also interested in the social aspects of technology adoption, short-lived climate pollutants, and soil carbon storage.
In 2014, Bodie graduated with a BS in Environmental Science and was named the Presidential Scholar for Huxley School of the Environment. He is currently an NSF Graduate Research Fellow pursuing a PhD in the Energy and Resources Group.
