Carole Dalin, Civil and Environmental Engineering
Carole is interested in water, food security, and climate issues. Her work focuses on the use of water resources for food, by quantifying and analyzing the global virtual water trade network and its evolution. Taking into account the time and space variability of agricultural water use efficiency, she is able to identify key importers and exporters of water and to assess whether international food trade leads to an increasingly efficient use of global water resources.
