Neil Carter

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Neil Carter is assistant professor in the School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS) at the University of Michigan. His interdisciplinary research examines the complex dynamics that characterize interactions between wildlife and people in a global change context. His work addresses local-to-global wildlife conservation issues, utilizes a multitude of spatial techniques and tools, engages different stakeholders, and informs policymaking. His projects use field monitoring, social surveys, remote sensing, GIS, and spatial and simulation modeling to investigate human-wildlife coexistence in a number of contexts, such as the American West, Nepal, and southern Africa. Prior to SEAS, Dr. Carter was an assistant professor in the Human-Environment Systems research group at Boise State University. He was a postdoctoral research fellow at SESYNC and Princeton University. He earned his PhD from Michigan State University in Fisheries and Wildlife.
