Kate Brauman's day job is at the University of Minnesota's Institute on the Environment (IonE), a Consortium member. There, she is lead scientist for IonE's Global Water Assessment, which incorporates policy and economic approaches into water resource management. Recently, however, she's been tapped as a spokesperson for her contribution to the shocking, recent United Nations report on the accelerating rate of species extinction. An article in the Star Tribune describes the report's findings and Brauman's role in developing a major section on natural water systems and serving as coordinating lead author for the entire report. Brauman has been interviewed by media outlets throughout North America and in Europe, Asian and the Middle East. You can read her full bio here
