An Interdisciplinary Approach

Advancement of interdisciplinary approaches to solving conservation and science problems is slowed by the constraints imposed on research programs by traditional disciplinary boundaries. Interdisciplinary approaches also often require collaborations with individuals, groups and institutions located far from a researcher’s home institution, bringing additional challenges in maintaining communication and the smooth flow of ideas and results. To ensure innovation and development of new ideas, I am committed to establishing non-traditional as well as traditional partnerships with individuals who share interests in these approaches and bring their own thinking and resources to the core research programs. This results in a broad network of thought leaders and practitioners interested in partnering with local peoples, non-governmental groups and academic and research institutions, with the goal of testing new approaches to research.
