Jodi is a conservation biologist who uses remotely-sensed, broad-scale datasets to characterize global change processes, and then integrates those change assessments with social-economic spatial data to understand the drivers of change, and ecological field data to understand the consequences of change for biodiversity. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala, a Fulbright scholar in Bolivia, and performed her PhD research in southwest China. Jodi completed postdoctoral fellowship with IFRI at the University of Michigan, focusing on identifying linkages between governance and forest change in Central Africa. She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Dartmouth College. She works with Dr. Reo and the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians to characterize historical landscape change and design ecosystem restoration projects in Anishinaabe regions of northern Michigan.
