Presented by Lindsey Rustad
Thursday, November 17, 7pm
Rustad will discuss her philosophy of why the integration of art and science is so important right now, using the Waterviz project as a case study.
Dr. Lindsey Rustad is the Acting Director of the USDA Northeast Climate Hub, providing expertise on the impacts of global change on northeastern forests.
She is also a Research Ecologist for the USDA Forest Service Center for Research on Ecosystem Change in Durham, NH and a Team Leader for the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in NH. Her areas of expertise include biogeochemistry, global change impacts, and advanced environmental sensor systems. Her current interests include implementation of cybertechnology in forests across the northeastern United States and integration of Arts and Science at long term ecological field stations. She received a B.A. in Philosophy at Cornell University in 1980, a M.S. in Forest Science at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences in 1983, and a Ph.D in Plant Science in 1988 at the University of Maine.
