EES Faculty Member Updates

EES Faculty members are on the move. Dr. Hamish Greig, our Assistant Director and Graduate Coordinator, was awarded promotion and tenure in the School of Biology and Ecology. Congratulations, Associate Professor Greig!

Dr. Katharine Ruskin, EES lecturer and Undergraduate Coordinator, was awarded the 2019 Second Century Stewardship Fellowship. This program was launched by the National Park Service to provide scientific research for park stewardship and pursue solutions to critical issues for parks and society. Dr. Ruskin’s project will focus how people view the freshwater resources at Acadia, and this will help the park managers maximize the use of its lakes and streams.

Dr. Amanda Klemmer will begin a tenure track position in landscape foodweb ecology starting in Fall 2019 within the School of Biology and Ecology and EES. Her new position allows Dr. Klemmer to continue her excellent track record of teaching—including EES 489 (Senior Capstone)—while further developing her interdisciplinary research program.
