Samuel Reed, Chair
Samuel Reed is a PhD student in Natural Resources Science and Management and an NSF Graduate Research Fellow. He is interested in compounding ecological disturbance in forests, as he believes this phenomena is our portal to see into the earth’s ecological future and will become more frequent with a changing climate. His passions are defined by a singular quote, being “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Sam is a graduate of The Ohio State University and plans to apply his scientific training at the U of M to improve science policy and help combat the attacks on climate science we see today.
