Director, Environmental Studies Program
Academic Director, UM Study of the United States Institute: Global Environmental Issues
Conservation Biology: My interests in the field of conservation biology include population viability analysis and the effects of human population on biodiversity. I am also interested in the mapping of biodiversity and the threats to its preservation, especially to support reserve planning and design.
Environmental Law and Policy: How citizens can influence the policy process and environmental outcomes to protect the environment and the human communities that depend on it.
Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation: I am interested in how we can mitigate and adapt to climate change through individual and collective choices and policy initiatives.
