Carolien Kraan is a doctoral researcher at the Abess Center for Ecosystem Science and Policy. Her dissertation research focuses on flood risk management in a changing climate. She aims to create more understanding of how flooding impacts societies and how policies can be designed and implemented to adapt to flood hazards, mitigating the impacts.

Prior to joining UM, Kraan worked at Stanford University, where she focused on integrative assessment of climate change impacts and adaptation. She specifically looked at the relationship between climate and conflict, and into FEMA-funded property buyouts as a form of managed retreat to move people and assets out of flood prone areas.

Kraan has also worked as a researcher and policy advisor at the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), and holds an MSc in Integrated Resource Management from the University of Edinburgh, UK, and a BSc from University College Roosevelt, the Netherlands. She grew up in the Netherlands and has since enjoyed living in Hong Kong, Scotland, France, California, and South Florida.
