MScF and PhD students conduct focused research under the supervision of one of our faculty members. Faculty members’ research is often interdisciplinary and applied in nature, distilling the utility and impact of discoveries and enabling partnerships with the public, private and non-profit sectors.
Successful candidates come from a variety of backgrounds including biology, botany, ecology, economics, environmental studies, engineering, forestry, agriculture, mathematical and computer science, physical and social sciences, and zoology.
Your program will be developed to reflect your individual strengths and research interests. Research interests of our faculty members include (but aren’t limited to):
