John Ryan McGreevy
I am currently a third year PhD student in Integrative Conservation and Anthropology (ICON). I seek in my research to better understand the complex relationships between humans and the environment, focusing primarily on natural resource use, disaster vulnerability, and adaptation to climate change in the Caribbean. My upcoming doctoral research explores the connection between tree use and extreme weather events in the mountains of Southern Haiti. I will conduct this interdisciplinary research through lenses from social and ecological sciences and an integrative toolset of ethnography, agent-based modeling, and remote sensing. Study results will contribute to theory on the fit between livelihood strategies and ecosystem services in social-ecological systems, and they will likewise inform application for disaster preparedness and adaptation to climate change in the Caribbean.
