Contact Information


Jim Duncan serves as the director of the Forest Ecosystem Monitoring Cooperative, where he's helping to make long-term monitoring data on Vermont's forested ecosystems more accessible, more interoperable and more useful for seeing and responding to change, as well as building new regional networks for greater collaboration in environmental monitoring. He also supports interdisciplinary teams in UVM's Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources with spatiotemporal analysis and integration of social and ecological data. He previously worked to increase transparency in the oil, gas and mining sectors by giving decision makers and citizens tools to map and interact with data, including in Mongolia and Ghana.
