The IGERT Winter Seminar Series will continue on March 3, 2015 with speaker
Jack Kittinger.

Dr. Kittinger is a human geographer and coastal ecologist with broad
interests in understanding and advancing solutions to complex problems that
face society and the ocean environment. His research explores how social,
economic, and cultural factors influence the ways in which people use,
perceive, and govern natural resources, with a particular emphasis on using
applied social science to inform environmental management, planning and
policy. Many of Dr. Kittinger’s research projects have focused on applying
the results of basic research to community planning and management and he
often collaborates with scientists, managers, and community stakeholders in
knowledge-to-action partnerships to bridge science to policy and practice.
His current research focuses on linking ecosystem services and food
security to community well-being, collaborative planning and resource
co-management, and social resilience and vulnerability to environmental and
social change. Dr. Kittinger works primarily in Hawai‘i, the Pacific
Islands, and the Asia-Pacific region.

Dr. Kittinger received his PhD from the Department of Geography at the
University of Hawai‘i at Manoa, his MS in Marine Science and Environmental
Studies from the University of San Diego and his BS in Biology from the
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Please join us for his talk, entitled "What good is interdisciplinarity
anyway? Reflections on marine conservation in a changing sea", from 4:30 -
5:30, Tuesday, March 3, 2015, in Fisheries 102. A reception with food and
beverages will follow.
