Jeremy Brooks (Brooks_CV_2018):

I am an assistant professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources and I have been at OSU since 2012. I am affiliated with the Environmental Social Science faculty group and the Sustainable and Resilient Economy Discovery Theme. I am also on the faculty leadership committee for the Environment, Economy, Development, and Sustainability (EEDS) major and the lead contact for the International Development specialization within this major. For more information on my background and interests, please see the “Research” Tab about, or see my CV (link above). Please contact me or any of the folks below for our thoughts on research and life in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at OSU.

When I’m not in the office or out doing research, I like to spend time outdoors with my family or in the rink playing hockey.
