Graduate Program Faculty

Students: It is best to email the faculty member in question if you are in the process of securing an advisor and/or forming your committee. Corrections and updates can be directed to the ESP Webmaster.

Program Faculty are associated with the Department of Environmental Science and Policy in that they serve on thesis and dissertation committees, engage in ongoing research with our graduate students, or occasionally teach a course in the department. They are core faculty members in other Mason departments, schools, and research centers. The faculty on this page are also listed as “Other Environmental Program Faculty” in the 2017-18 catalog information for the department: http://catalog.gmu.edu/colleges-schools/science/environmental-policy/#facultytext.

*These faculty are University Affiliate faculty (see explanation here).
