LAUREN D. QUINN, Ph.D.
I am an applied ecologist with an interest in consulting on sustainability research, energy and science policy, bioenergy production systems, and invasive species. While I find ecological theory interesting, I am much more satisfied when I can provide solutions to real problems, whether they are policy solutions or practical management insights. I also know that it is incredibly important to communicate scientific findings to the right audiences – people outside the academy who can use such results to improve industrial processes, administrative policy, or personal practices. Please refer to the samples of my work below or visit the other pages on this site to learn more.
