Director, Indiana University Office of Sustainability
Bill Brown serves as the director of the Indiana University Office of Sustainability and oversees staff and volunteers in carrying out his office's mission to catalyze a thriving culture of sustainability in academic, research, operations, administration, campus life, and community outreach in order to enhance environmental health, economic prosperity, and social equity.
My students and I are interested in how interspecific interactions, particularly microbial symbioses and disease, affect dynamics of ecological communities. Recent research has revealed unsuspected microbial diversity and evidence for its central role in many ecological processes. Our ongoing research projects fall into three general areas: microbial symbiosis, disease and host ecology, and biological invasions.
Professor of Geography
Tom Evans is a Professor in the Department of Geography and Senior Fellow with the Ostrom Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis at Indiana University. His work addresses the intersection of social and environmental systems with an emphasis on household-level decision making in the context of diverse governance arrangements. Previous work focused on dynamics of deforestation/reforestation while more recently his work has investigated the impact of climate change on smallholder farming systems in Kenya/Zambia and the ability of multi-level governance regimes and farmer adaptive capacity to mitigate effects of drought
Professor of Outdoor Recreation, Park, & Tourism Studies
Dr. Farmer's research lab is focused on sustainable agriculture and associated local food systems, as well as private land conservation and land trusts. Current projects focus on the use of high tunnels to provide year-round local foods; active management of private lands for ecosystem services; and climate change, municipal parks, and long term planning for adaptive management.
Professor of Geological Sciences
Dr. Hamburger's major research interests are in seismotectonics, dynamics of earthquake and volcanic processes, and application of satellite geodetic measurements to geodynamic problems. He has active research programs in the subduction zone environment of the Philippine island arc and the intraplate environment of the central U.S.
My research examines the relationships between people, the environment, and global trade systems, especially within agricultural and agro-ecological landscapes. I ask: what are the connections between the cultivation of land and the cultivation of self?
Professor of Environmental Science
Professor Royer and his students study biogeochemistry and water quality in streams and rivers. They are particularly interested in the coupled cycling of nitrogen, phosphorus, and organic carbon. Much of their work is conducted in human-dominated landscapes, such as the agricultural regions of the central U.S.
Integrated Program in the Environment; Professor of Religious Studies
Professor Sideris's research focuses on environmental ethical issues at the intersection of religion and culture, and particularly at the intersection of religious and scientific worldviews. Her interests include the conflict and compatibility between Darwinian perspectives on nature and natural processes, and religious-ethical claims about the natural world and its value.
Professor of Environmental Science, Physical Chemistry
Professor Stevens' research interests focus on characterizing the chemical mechanisms in the atmosphere that influence regional air quality and global climate change. Much of his group's research is focused on improving our understanding of the influence of biogenic emissions and their oxidation products on the chemistry of the atmosphere.
