Giana Amador is passionate about innovative solutions to climate change. As a research analyst for the Center for Carbon Removal, Amador is working to accelerate the development of scalable, sustainable, economically-viable carbon removal solutions. In the past, she has researched the policy, technology, and political economy implications of renewable energy in the United States. Fueled by her mitigation work on efficient cookstoves in Nicaragua, Amador has worked tirelessly to reconcile the real-life impacts of climate change with its scientific complexity in order to communicate the need for swift and strict climate action.
