Dining with Sustainability Participants

Ed Hall

Ed Hall
Assistant Profressor, Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, Colorado State University
I am a systems scientist working to understand how microorganisms control and constrain transformative processes across the terrestrial-aquatic interface. My research crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, linking physical and ecological sciences and scales from single-cell microbiology to integrated watershed analyses of coupled human and natural systems.

microbial, aquatic, watershed, aquaculture, sustainability

Jennifer Hayes

Public and Legislative Affairs Specialist, US Forest Service
I work to tell the stories of scientists and to provide science-based information to policy and decision makers. I love bringing people together to solve problems. My current position is a public and legislative affairs specialist for the Rocky Mountain Research Station, where we bring science to and collaborate with stakeholders across the Intermountain West. Previously, I managed partnerships and organized the 2014 International Union of Forest Research Organizations World Congress. I love the opportunity to connect across landscapes and the globe to see how our issues are similar and we can apply lessons learned from all walks of life.

Paul Hellmund

Paul Hellmund
President, Hellmund Associates
I'm dedicated to finding more effective ways of educating for sustainability, acknowledging that traditional approaches may not be serving some of the most creative thinkers and problem solvers, who naturally think in terms of whole systems and integration and are not engaged by "siloed" teaching. In particular, I have been studying fully immersive, experiential learning approaches, that connect students with real-world, community-based opportunities to serve and learn simultaneously.

Visiting Fellow, School of Global Environmental Sustainability, Colorado State University
I have worked for more than 30 years in sustainable development in Africa and Asia with CARE International, a non-governmental organization. Currently I manage an 8-country action research project focused on the impacts of climate change on agriculture and migration. My wife and I moved to Fort Collins in 2012, and I joined the School of Global Environmental Sustainability in 2013.

Tom Hill

Research Scientist, Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University
I am part of an extraordinary team exploring the link between the land, the sea and the clouds that flow overhead. Specifically, I am investigating the sources of organic ice nucleating particles released by plants, soil and seawater to understand their role as biological cloud seeders that trigger precipitation.
