Dr. Mysha Clarke received her Ph.D. in Natural Resources Social Sciences from Purdue University in the Department of Forestry and Natural Resources. A Jamaican native, Dr. Clarke's doctoral research focused on the human dimensions of invasive plant management on family forests using Indiana as a case study. She uses both qualitative and quantitative social science research methods such as interviews, surveys, focus groups and qualitative content analysis to investigate environmental decision making. Dr. Clarke is broadly interested in social-ecological systems and best practices to engage the community in natural resources topics including forestry, ecosystem services and green infrastructure.
This fall, she will be teaching GEV 3001: Intro to Sustainability and GEV 4333: Politics and the Environment. Her office is located Mendel G-63B. Welcome to Villanova, Dr. Clarke!
