J. Marty Anderies
Ph.D., Applied Mathematics
Assistant Professor

SHESC Themes: Societies and Their Natural Environments, Global Dynamics and Regional Interactions

Field specializations: human ecology, human environment interaction, mathematical bioeconomics, modeling and simulation

Regional focus: International


About Research
My current research interests focus on robust management and robust institutional design for coupled social-ecological systems. I study a range of archaeological, historical, and present-day examples of social-ecological systems using formal mathematical modeling and analysis to develop an understanding of ecological, behavioral, social, and institutional factors that generate vulnerability and/or enhance resilience and robustness in social-ecological systems. Other areas of interest include economic growth, demographics, and the environment and mathematical modeling in community ecology.
