Ana Lambert is NRCC’s first Resident Fellow, a new program to support the work of an emerging environmental leader or scholar.
Over 2023, she’ll collaborate on NRCC core projects while advancing her PhD research at the University of Manchester. Her research examines how global organizations frame and represent human aspects of environmental change, using the Amazon basin as the focus. With this expertise, she’ll work with NRCC to better understand how different stakeholders understand and represent the GYE, and as a result, shape individual and institutional actions.
Ana was raised in Mexico, where she studied Environmental Engineering at the Instituto Tecnólogico y de Estudios Superiores de Occidente (ITESO). She then pursued a Master of Environmental Management at the Yale School of the Environment, focusing on international and large-scale conservation. After graduating in 2017, she worked in Latin America, the United States, Africa, and Australia, spanning social science, engineering, and wildlife conservation. In her latest position, she managed the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Latin America Illegal Wildlife Trade Program.
