Environmental Policy Goddard Chair Group

Welcome to the Environmental Policy Goddard Chair Group. We are a team of students, postdocs, and faculty working on transdisciplinary science and policy engagement in the following areas:

  • Watersheds, high mountain hydrology, and glacier loss
  • Forest land use and climate-smart forestry
  • Natural resource conservation and policy
  • Water-energy-food nexus, water security, and transboundary waters
  • Energy transitions, renewables, and carbon mitigation
  • Climate adaptation and resilience

Much of our research follows a social-ecological systems approach, with ongoing projects in the Appalachians, Alleghenies, Andes, and Himalayas

We work in collaboration with stakeholders in public agencies, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector in Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic and U.S. West, as well as in Latin America and South Asia.

Students and faculty interested in working in our Group should contact Dr. Christopher Scott
