We are absolutely thrilled that Dr. Christine Biermann will be joining our Department starting next Autumn! She brings with her new perspectives and research interests, which we are sure will very much strengthen our department's teaching and research. Check out how Dr. Biermann describes her own interests below:
I am a nature-society geographer with training in both human and physical geography. I am graduating with my Ph.D. in Geography from Ohio State University this May, and my current research explores the politics of ecological restoration and de-extinction projects. I am excited to work with students to better understand 'nature' from both social and biophysical perspectives, and I can't wait to learn more about environmental issues of the Pacific Northwest.
