The post-doctoral scientist will collaborate on the development of a research program focused on urban forest patches in
Connecticut and beyond. Research will focus on socio-ecological conditions and equity of access and ecosystem service provisioning associated with forest patches across urban to exurban landscapes. The project builds on a multi-year, interdisciplinary NSF-sponsored SESYNC Pursuit project focused on urban forest patches and a new USDA Forest Service-led regional network focused on Urban Silviculture.
