Biography

Christopher Boone is the dean of the School of Sustainability and professor in the School of Sustainability and School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University. His research contributes to ongoing debates in sustainable urbanization, environmental justice, vulnerability, and global environmental change. He is a co-PI for the urban Long Term Ecological Research projects based in Baltimore and Phoenix, both supported by the National Science Foundation. During his academic career, he has been a principal or co-principal investigator on research grants totaling $26 million. For the past three years he has sat on the scientific steering committee for the Urbanization and Global Environmental Change project, a core initiative of the International Human Dimensions program, and also participated in the US Global Change Research Program's US National Climate Assessment for Cities. He is an active contributor to Future Earth, an international initiative that aims to integrate the global environmental change community with a focus on sustainable outcomes. He is the author of two books on urban sustainability, City and Environment and Urbanization and Sustainability, and is the associate editor for Current Research on Cities. Dr. Boone serves on the editorial board of the International Journal of Sustainable Development and Environment Justice. For Cambridge University Press, he is the co-editor of a book series on sustainability. He is a member of the external advisory board for the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras IGERT program on the Urbanizing Tropics. For the Mayo Clinic, he serves on its Green Committee. At ASU, he has taught classes on sustainable urbanization, urban and environmental health, principles and methods of sustainability, environmental justice, and interdisciplinary methods for socio-ecological research. He served as a post-doctoral fellow at McGill University.
