Timothy L. H. Treuer

2018 AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow

Princeton, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Fellowship Sponsor: Heising-Simons Foundation
Fellowship Site: NOVA Next

I am an Alaskan, tropical ecologist, and graduate student at Princeton finishing up a Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology. My dissertation research focuses on large-scale tropical forest restoration, asking what specific lessons we can learn from the world’s largest single tropical forest restoration project, the Área de Conservación Guanacaste in Costa Rica, as well what sorts of policies and resources we need to activate more broadly to achieve our international conservation, climate, and habitat restoration goals. Though it means missing out on prime backpacking, fishing, and exploring time in Land of the Midnight Sun, I’m over the moon to be paired with NOVA Next in Boston this summer.
