Philip Nyhus

Philip Nyhus, Ph.D., is Assistant Professor and Co-Chair of the Environmental Studies Program, Department of Earth and Environment, Franklin and Marshall College. From 1999 to 2001, Dr. Nyhus was a postdoctoral research and teaching fellow funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) Award for the Integration of Research and Education at Colby College. In his interdisciplinary research he bridges the natural and social sciences to addresses human interactions with the environment. He has studied tiger and large mammal conservation in Indonesia and China and is exploring how linkages among coupled human-natural systems can be used to improve biodiversity risk assessment to inform conservation policy at regional and global scales. Dr. Nyhus is Principle Investigator on a grant from NSF’s Biocomplexity in the Environment Program (DEB 0083615), “Models and Meta-Networks for Interdisciplinary Research in Biodiversity Risk Assessment,” and Co-PI on a proposal under review in the same program, “Biocomplexity and Biodiversity: An Interdisciplinary, Integrated, Multi-Model Approach to Endangered Species Risk Assessment and Education.” He has collaborated on developing new models of population viability analysis, disease risk, and spatial analysis. Funding for his research has also come from, among other sources, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Security Education Program, and The Tiger Foundation (Canada).
