As director of the Institute on the Environment, I bring an ecological perspective to big questions about people and the planet. My scholarship embraces the ideas at the very core of IonE: that we can discover creative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems when we work at the intersection of academic disciplines and collaborate with decision-makers and the public. I study how climate change is affecting living things and what we can do to reduce the negative impacts to live healthy, happy and sustainable lives.
I’m also a faculty fellow in the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change and a member of the graduate faculty of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the Conservation Sciences program of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. And I am honored to serve on the board of directors of several organizations that moving the needle on science and sustainability.
