Dr. Jianguo (Jack) Liu has been on the MSU faculty since completing his postdoctoral study at Harvard University (he was on sabbatical at Stanford University from 2001-2002, and was on sabbatical at Harvard University and Princeton University from 2008-2009). He is particularly keen in connecting seemingly unconnected issues (e.g., divorce and environmental impacts). Dr. Liu’s interests include systems integration (integrating ecology with socioeconomics, demography, policy, advanced technologies, and other disciplines), households-environment interactions, complexity of coupled human and natural systems, and sustainability science. His work has been repeatedly published in journals such as Nature and Science, and has been widely featured in the global news media. Dr. Liu has served on various international and national committees and panels. He is President of US-IALE (US Regional Association, International Association for Landscape Ecology). In recognition of his efforts and achievements in research, teaching, and service, Dr. Liu has been given many awards, such as the Guggenheim Fellowship Award, CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, Distinguished Service Award from US-IALE, and Aldo Leopold Leadership Fellowship from the Ecological Society of America.
