Juliana Magalhães

Senior Project Associate

Juliana joined ClimeCo in 2023 as a Senior Project Associate with our Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) team. She is motivated to turn science-based ideas into actions that promote the sustainability of forests. Her experience with forest growth, yield data, and a strong understanding of multi-objective forest management helps develop high-standard carbon projects. Furthermore, she’s looking forward to contributing to the expansion of ClimeCo’s forest carbon projects throughout South America, especially Brazil.

Before ClimeCo, Juliana was an academic and forest researcher with a focused interest in Forest Ecology and Modelling. Her research focused on how interactions, specifically competition, could influence tree species’ individual responses to climate change. As an instructor, she assisted students in field activity tasks (such as forest biomass mensuration and site assessment) and taught different Forestry courses (such as Silviculture and Forest Economics). 

Juliana earned her Ph.D. in Forest Sciences from the University of British Columbia (Canada), Master’s in Forest Sciences, and Bachelor’s in Forest Engineering from the Federal University of Viçosa (Brazil). In addition to Portuguese, she is fluent in English, proficient in Spanish, and a beginner in French. Juliana enjoys water sports, especially rowing and canoeing, and is currently trying to master pull-ups.
