Jack Liu named Guggenheim Fellow

Jack Liu Field Research Jack Liu works with other scientists at the China Research and Conservation Center for the Giant Panda to better understand the impact of human interaction on areas of biodiversity.

PSC off-campus affiliate Jianguo (Jack) Liu has been named a Guggenheim Fellow for 2006. This year marks the 82nd year of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation's United States and Canadian competition. The winners include 187 artists, scholars, and scientists selected from almost 3,000 applicants for awards totaling $7,500,000.

Decisions are based on recommendations from hundreds of expert advisors and are approved by the Foundation's Board of Trustees. Guggenheim Fellows are appointed on the basis of distinguished achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment.

Jianguo (Jack) Liu is the Rachel Carson Chair in Ecological Sustainability and Director of Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability at Michigan State University. His Fellowship is based on his NSF-funded research, "Complex Interactions among Policies, People, and Panda Habitat in the Wolong Nature Reserve Landscape."

Dr. Liu's broad research interests include conservation ecology, landscape ecology, human-environment interactions, systems modeling and simulation, and impacts of human population and activity on spatio-temporal dynamics of endangered species such as the giant panda in China. He is keenly interested in integrating ecology with socioeconomics as well as human demography and behavior for understanding and managing patterns, processes and sustainability of biodiversity and natural resources/ecosystem services across multiple temporal and spatial scales. His work has been published in journals such as Nature and Science, and has been featured many times in the popular media.
