Tuesday, February 12th CU Boulder Koelbel 220 5-6pm
Dan Doak, Professor, Colorado Chair in Environmental Studies, CU-Boulder
Dan Doak grew up in Anchorage, Alaska (where his family moved from Maine when he was was 6 years old). He went to college back east, then earned a PhD at the University of Washington, in Seattle. Ever since he was a kid, Dan says, he has been interested in ecology—plants, animals, and why the natural world works as it does. “I was also always concerned about conservation and other environmental issues, and late in my graduate school days, this interest converged with my professional skills, when I started to address conservation issues in my academic work.” Now, Dan’s work involves analyzing the conservation of endangered or threatened species, as well as field work on climate change effects in the Rockies and in Alaska, and on the ecology of savannas in Kenya. In addition to teaching and research, Dan devotes a lot of time to working with conservation groups, agencies, and others directly involved in on-the-ground conservation work.
