Speaker Bio: Elizabeth King

Lizzie King is a Lecturer & Research Associate in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University. (Ph.D. 2004, Population Biology, University of California, Davis) Working primarily in Kenyan rangelands, her research investigates both ecological and social dynamics that relate to restoration ecology, resilience, and sustainability in traditional pastoralist systems. Two main current projects: 1) Dryland ecosystem dynamics: spatial organization of landscapes, ecohydrological feedbacks, regime shifts, and restoration. 2) Comparative study of social-ecological transformations, property rights, and sustainability in East African and Mongolian pastoralist systems. Drawing from 15 years of experience in Kenya, she teaches an undergraduate course on resilience and sustainability in African pastoralist systems, and supervises an array of research projects under the umbrella of Princeton Environmental Institute's Water in Africa initiative.
