Stephanie Ratté’s research focuses on climate change, water, and infrastructure across varied forms, while trying to remain attentive to questions of time, worries around change, and the problems of toxicity, particularly in coastal urban landscapes. She was previously a Yale Fox International Fellow at the University of Tokyo, where her research focused on spatial and scalar visions of the oceans as dynamic, distant spaces and resources. Her previous experiences also include work with the Global Island Partnership, the United Nations Development Programme in Barbados, the World Resources Institute, and Earthjustice in Washington, DC. Stephanie's research is supported by a Wenner-Gren Foundation Dissertation Fieldwork Grant and a National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Grant.
