Lindsey Christensen Nesbitt, Ph.D.
While her undergraduate degree was in wildlife biology from BYU, her Ph.D. in Ecology from Colorado State University took a “systems” (or a broader) approach to understanding ecosystems. This helped lead Lindsey into more applied experiences with, for example, environmental consulting, here in Utah. Currently, Lindsey is Research Associate, Department of Geology and Geophysics, PMST Environmental Science Track Director. Lindsey teaches Environmental Biology and Global Change Ecology at the University of Utah, but is also involved with systems modeling research with the U’s Environmental Engineering department, and helping to run the new Professional Masters program in Science and Technology at the U.
