Gund Internal Steering Committee Gund Graduate Fellow, Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources

Luke Briccetti is a PhD student in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources and a Gund Institute student fellow. He received his B.S. from Tufts University and his M.S. in Natural Resources & Ecology from SUNY Plattsburgh, where he worked with the Lake Champlain Research Institute at SUNY Plattsburgh.

Luke is broadly interested in research that uses social science to discover equitable pathways to address environmental problems. Luke’s M.S. focused on understanding how landowner perspectives influence the adoption of forest best management practices, including BMPs for private road culverts. He aspires to ask questions that can improve community resilience in the face of climate change, both within Vermont and beyond.

Luke is a board member of the Native Fish Coalition in Vermont, a conservation organization that advocates for native fish species as a priority in fisheries management decisions. Luke’s interests include fishing, foraging, and being in wild spaces as often as possible!
