Research interests

Dr. Kelli Archie’s research interests focus mainly on climate change adaptation. Specifically, she has looked at reconciling the supply and demand of climate information, how attitudes and beliefs about climate change affect adaptation decisions, household-level adaptation decisions in vulnerable areas, and overcoming barriers to adaptation planning and hurdles to implementation.

Kelli is particularly interested in alpine areas. In the past she has worked primarily with public lands in the Western USA and mountain communities in the Rocky Mountains. She is also interested in ecosystem-service mapping, especially as it relates to adaptation and conservation.
