Faculty Affiliates Studying Social-Ecological Systems

This page shows all SGCI Faculty Affiliates who have selected Social-Ecological Systems as either a primary OR secondary Research Theme.

The SGCI uses six broadly-defined Core Research Themes, pictured at right, to better categorize UConn’s research capacity on topics involving cities.  Our Faculty Affiliates are grouped according to these six themes.  Affiliates self-select one primary Research Theme that best represents their research and scholarship, and — since cities-related research is often interdisciplinary — they typically select one or more secondary themes as well. 

Click on any Faculty Affiliate name to see a detailed profile, including contact information, research interests, recent cities-related publications, useful links, and more.  Use the links in the sidebar at left to browse SGCI Faculty Affiliates by last name or Research Theme.
