Dr. Monica Granados is the Open Climate Campaign Manager for a multi-year campaign to open knowledge about the climate crisis and preserving global biodiversity. Climate change, and the resulting harm to our global biodiversity, is one of the world's most pressing challenges. If we are going to solve these global challenges, the knowledge (research, data, educational resources, software) about them must be open.
While doing her PhD in ecology at McGill University, Monica discovered that incentives in academia promote practices that make knowledge less accessible leading her to devote her career to making knowledge more equitable and open. Prior to coming to CC, Monica worked at Environment and Climate Change Canada as a Senior Policy Advisor on the Open Science Team and is presently on the Leadership Team of PREreview.
Monica lives in Ottawa, Canada with her partner where she enjoys performing improv with her troupe, building Lego sets and volunteering with the Ottawa Volunteer Search and Rescue Team.
