Human-Environment Interactions

Humans have changed the physical, ecological, and biological components of the Earth’s planetary systems to an astonishing degree. Those environmental changes impact human populations in return, and continue to shift, often in unanticipated ways. Our research seeks to inform the transitions that society will need to make to sustain and improve human well-being in the face of environmental change, and to provide insights that will help limit environmental degradation.
