Who we are

Interdisciplinary, Passionate, and Attuned

The Environmental Science in Society's research team is made up of an array of scholars with diverse academic and professional backgrounds. Our training spans the natural sciences (forestry, invasive species, fisheries, climate change mitigation, and adaptation) as well as the social sciences (political science, geography, Indigenous and settler studies). These different backgrounds bring unique insight and analysis to the contemporary problems of environmental governance.


Regardless of the particular lens through which we approach our research, all of us have a passionate commitment to better understanding the complex and dynamic relationships between science and society in order to address our most pressing environmental issues.
