From Ivory Tower to Prison Tower


Using trees and environmental science as a backdrop, forest ecologist finds synergy with those excluded from science—and society.

History Holds Key

When using the archeological past to examine sustainability, humans provide key functions in environments they inhabit.

The absence of humans in a landscape can have dramatic effects. Removing them from ecosystems can allow forests to advance, for example, but it can also cause human-dependent species to become extinct.

2019 Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data Short Course


Solutions to pressing environmental problems require understanding connections between human and natural systems. Analysis of these systems requires a model that can deal with complexity, is able to exploit data from multiple sources, and is honest about the uncertainty from multiple sources. Synthesis of results from multiple studies is often required. Bayesian hierarchical models provide a powerful approach to analysis of socio-environmental problems.
