“To compete in a global market of ideas, we need to empower talent everywhere to become creators —rather than just consumers — of ideas and technology.”
Stefanie M. Falconi
I grew up in the foothills of the Andean Mountains. Nature was my first laboratory and I learned the joy of adventure and discovery early in life. My love for figuring-things-out led me to earn a Ph.D. in engineering and a career in STEM, because a curious mind is an awful thing to waste.
I'm a policy entrepreneur and co-founder of Instituto Limite. I have 15 years of experience working in sustainability projects spanning 4 continents from rural villages in South Africa to the metropolitan city of São Paulo, Brazil.
I'm a consultant working with institutions on climate change strategies and collaborative process for improved decisions. I also work one-on-one with academics to radically accelerate climate policy for a more prosperous future.
