Sagan Friant

Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Evolutionary anthropology of human health, disease ecology, nutrition, socio-ecological systems, bushmeat hunting, Nigeria.

Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics

Heather Hines

Associate Professor of Biology and Entomology
Applies genomic, transcriptomic, phylogenomic, and bioinformatic approaches to study the evolution and genetics of diverse traits in bees and wasps. This includes study of mimetic color diversification, plant gall induction, novel morphologies, speciation, and social evolution.

Justin Pritchard

Huck Early Career Entrepreneurial Professorship; Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering;
Using systems and synthetic biology approaches to understand and control drug resistance.

Nita Bharti

Huck Early Career Professor; Associate Professor of Biology
The Bharti lab investigates the underlying links between humans, pathogens, and the environment. We work to identify the mechanisms that give rise to heterogeneities in host disease burden and risk across scales, across spatial and temporal scales. We study the dynamics of host-environment interactions that drive movement and contact patterns as they relate to to pathogen transmission and access to health care.

Burt Staniar

Assistant Professor of Equine Science

Tracy Langkilde

Penn State Interim Executive Vice President and Provost; Dean of the Eberly College of Science; Professor of Biology
The interface of ecology and evolution to understand how an organism's traits are matched to its environment and responds to novel selective pressures imposed by global environmental change, and the consequences of this adaptation.

Ruairidh Sawers

Assistant Professor of Plant Response to Abiotic Stress
Local adaptation and stress tolerance in crop plants and their wild relatives; plant nutrition; arbuscular mycorrhizae; maize genetics and genomics.

Jack Watson

Professor of Soil Science

Jason Keagy

Assistant Research Professor of Wildlife Behavioral Ecology
Cognitive ecology (with studies at genome, individual, and species levels). I am particularly interested in applications for solving wildlife management problems

Franny Buderman

Assistant Professor of Quantitative Wildlife Ecology
Quantitative ecology, with a focus on the demography, space-use, and movement of wildlife.

Jill Hamilton

Director of the Schatz Center for Tree Molecular Genetics; Associate Professor
Genomic basis of climate adaptation, conservation, and restoration genetics.

Clare Hinrichs

Professor of Rural Sociology
How transitions to sustainability are understood, negotiated, organized, contested, and assessed.

Lynne Beaty

Assistant Professor of Biology, Penn State Behrend
Behavioral ecology with a particular emphasis on the role of previous experience with predation risk on the phenotype of prey; anurans, freshwater biology, latent/carry-over effects, phenotypic plasticity

Isabelle Holland-Lulewicz

Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Human-environment dynamics in the Southeastern and Midwestern US by way of paleoenvironmental reconstructions via zooarchaeological analyses of vertebrate and invertebrates, stable isotopes analyses of marine shell, and chronological modelling of anthropogenic exploitations of estuarine and riverine environments.
