Community Resilience and Climate Justice in the U.S. and Mexico
Matthew Jurjonas Ph.D.
Environmental Social Scientist
I am currently the Bailey Conservation Fellow, a dual position, with The Nature Conservancy's Michigan Chapter and the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research at the University of Michigan. My research is focused on synthesizing the work of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative and assessing local project monitoring efforts for both ecological and human well-being benefits.
As a social scientist, I have developed interdisciplinary collaborative conservation projects focused on sustainable rural development and climate justice in the United States and Mexico. With professional working proficiency in Spanish, I can engage diverse stakeholders with workshops, meetings, and focus groups to conduct research and foster strategic planning to build adaptive capacity for climate change.
