Project Description

Ms. Oyenuga, a native of Nigeria, is a Ph.D. candidate in environmental science with a concentration in environmental policy and risk management at Florida A&M University School of the Environment. Her research explores smallholder farmers’ approaches to adopting climate-smart agricultural practices and the decision-support tools smallholders will need in order to contend with increasing climate variability. Ms. Oyenuga previously worked at the New York City Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, where she measured and reported citywide greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. More recently, she piloted a corporate-level GHG emissions inventory and customized a framework for sustainability reporting at American Tire Distributors as an Environmental Defense Fund Climate Corps Fellow. Ms. Oyenuga holds a B.S. in chemistry from Texas Tech University and an M.S. in chemistry from Florida A&M University. She studies climate change mitigation and adaptation processes and policies that advance renewable energy, sustainable agriculture, resource conservation, and climate justice.
