Research Scientists and Scholars

The Earth Institute Center for Environmental Sustainability recognizes humanity’s well being is strongly governed by our relationship with nature. How this relationship is shaped, for better or worse, depends upon our intellectual and cultural understanding of the living world around us. The center contributes to this understanding through its distinguished affiliated faculty and researchers from the Consortium for Environmental Research and Conservation, including Columbia University, the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Botanical Garden, the Wildlife Conservation Society and EcoHealth Alliance.
