Julianne Busa

Julianne Busa

Julianne Busa received her doctorate from Ohio State University and is now a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellow in Environmental Science and Policy. In her teaching and research, she highlights the connections between the human system and the natural world, drawing upon longtime interests in both ecology and international studies. Her research focuses on understanding the interactions between socioeconomic factors and conservation practice, so that we can build sustainable economic and conservation policies for the future. Busa is also fascinated by food—both the taste of it and thinking about where it comes from and how we can create more ecologically-sound food systems throughout the world. Busa's current course offerings at Smith include Environmental Integration II: Collecting and Analyzing Information, which teaches students how to investigate the kind of environmental questions that most interest them.

Busa's interests include poverty and prosperity, global biodiversity conservation, ecological economics, globalization, food and environment, environmental discourse and political ecology.
