The GCC welcomes four new faculty affiliates in summer 2019

Meet our newest faculty affiliates:

SallyEntrekin_bio_900x1200
Dr. Sally Entrekin

Associate Professor, Department of Entomology

Research focus: macroinvertebrate population and community ecology and ecosystem function

Dr. Entrekin’s current research program addresses global change by working across disciplines that engage students and the public in water quality and quantity issues typically from development for urban centers, agriculture, and resource extraction

Gabriel Isaacman-VanWertz-1000x1000_sq
Dr. Gabriel Isaacman-VanWertz

Associate Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Research interests: understanding the complex chemistry of the atmosphere in the context of anthropogenic and naturally-driven changes across environments

Dr. Isaacman-VanWertz’s research seeks to understand the fundamental processes that control the composition and transformations of air pollutants, as well as the short-term impacts of human emissions and long-term trends driven by anthropogenic changes to atmospheres and ecosystems.

KarenKovaka_headshot_900x900_sq
Dr. Karen Kovaka

Assistant Professor, Philosophy

Recent work explores: biological debates about individuality and developmental plasticity and what they tell us about evolutionary theory, underdetermination, and scientific controversies

Current projects related to global change include:

  • an investigation of the problem of unintended consequences of environmental conservation
  • examining ethical and epistemic issues related to community science, in collaboration with the Galápagos Alliance
Linsey Marr, Associate Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering.
Dr. Linsey Marr

Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Research interests: the emissions, transformation, transport, and fate of pollutants in indoor and outdoor air; the airborne transmission of viral pathogens and infectious disease

Dr. Marr collaborates broadly with others to understand how changes at the microscopic to global scale affect public and environmental health.
