Brendan Fisher’s research interests lie in the nexus of biodiversity conservation, human livelihoods, and environmental economics. His current focus is on using the concept of ecosystem services and the tools of economics to understand tradeoffs between conservation and development in coastal East Africa and in Borneo. Recent academic posts include fellowships at the University of East Anglia and Princeton University. He works at the World Wildlife Fund and takes pictures of chickens - globally. He used to fill his days with hiking, soccer, and rock-climbing but now spends all non-work time happily playing with his kids Sayre, Austen and Kellan.
AT UVM: Brendan is an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Ecological Economics at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources.
Brendan works to connect biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services, and human well-being in tropical Asia and Africa.
