Bio: Dr. Shannon Hagerman is Associate Professor, and Associate Dean of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies at the Faculty of Forestry. Her research interests, as Principal Investigator of the Social-Ecological Systems Research Group, centre on the science-policy-management interface in the context of adapting conservation and resource management to climate change. Her decades-long work on the emergence and evolution of novel interventions for forests and biodiversity (e.g. assisted migration, new biotechnologies) reveals the contested, value-laden and inescapably social and political dimensions that shape transformative change. Shannon is actively involved in service to broader academic and practitioner communities including through initiatives that seek to better incorporate insights from the social sciences into policy and practice. She teaches human dimensions of conservation, and qualitative research methods and is a proud recipient of the Killam Teaching Prize in 2018, and the Faculty of Forestry Research Award in 2021.
