Steam Salon with Dr. Meredith Gore: Interdisciplinary Intelligence Mapping of Illicit Global Environmental Change

Powered by Research Commons at University Libraries. STEAM Salon is an informal series held in the STEM Library featuring faculty and student speakers in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics who engage and inspire our university community with their current research.

A scientific understanding of human behavior is critical for improving humans’ ability to predict and adapt to global environmental change.

The emerging field of conservation criminology offers a model for understanding the types of illicit human behavior and the emotions, cognitions, and institutions that are a cause and a consequence of illicit global environmental change.

Join us as Dr. Meredith Gore introduces key dimensions of conservation criminology and provide three widely different examples of how interdisciplinary intelligence mapping can engender enhanced scientific understanding of illicit global environmental change, based on recent fieldwork, including:

  • Illegal rosewood logging in Madagascar’s northeastern rainforests
  • Urban wildmeat trafficking into Kinshasa
  • Democratic Republic of the Congo
  • Sea cucumber trafficking (illegal fishing) in Yucatan, Mexico.

Dr. Meredith Gore is a conservation social scientist, interdisciplinary researcher focused on environmental crime, community conservation, human geography, science diplomacy.
