Associate Professor, Natural Resources and Environment
Dr. Currie develops ecosystem process models to simulate biogeochemical cycling and plant community ecology in wetlands, forests, mixed-use and human-dominated landscapes. He models social and ecological interactions that relate to sustainability in the environment and society’s use of natural resources. He uses statistical modeling, including structural equation modeling, to study landscape-scale patterns in forest fragmentation and tree cover. He is interested in transdisciplinary research, model ontologies and model linkages across fields.
