Biography

J. Marty Anderies' research interests focus on developing an understanding of how ecological, behavioral, social and institutional factors interact to generate vulnerabilities and/or enhance resilience and robustness in social-ecological systems.

His work relies on combining insights from present-day, historical, and archaeological examples of social-ecological systems with a range of analytical techniques and laboratory experiments to study how individual decision-making processes influence social and environmental outcomes.

Other areas of interest include economic growth and the environment, public investment, and demographic change.

Anderies is a professor in the School of Human Evolution and Social Change and the School of Sustainability, as well as the Graduate Director for the School of Sustainability and the Associate Director of the Center for Behavior, Institutions and the Environment.

Education

PhD, Applied Mathematics, University of British Columbia
