research overview

  • My leadership experience includes serving as Executive Director of the Earth Leadership Program, which is a global program focused on sustainability leadership; as the top-level scientific authority for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON); directing a large interdisciplinary environmental studies program; and serving as founding director of a community engagement center focused on sustainable landscapes and communities. My interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching focus on human-environment interactions in urban and wild landscapes. My research emphasizes the impacts of habitat loss, fragmentation, and restoration on the persistence of native species, communities, and ecosystems, and is particularly relevant to the interface between environmental science, policy and planning regarding endangered species and habitat protection.
