This faculty group focuses research and education on human interactions with nature and the environment; the science of humans (behavior and evolution); science as a human endeavor (history and philosophy of science); and the interplay of science and society in the context of education, public policy, law and daily life.
Michael Angilletta combines models and experiments to understand adaptation to changing environments.
Baluch oversees the W.M. Keck Bioimaging Laboratory in the School of Life Sciences. Her research is focused on studying the behavior of cells and tissue using advanced microscopy techniques.
Brownell is a neuroscientist turned full-time education researcher, who teaches undergraduate biology while studying biology education.
Chakravadhanula manages the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD), an NIH funded STEM initiative to encourage underrepresented students to achieve their career goals in science.
Cheng is associate director of Conservation Evidence, Center for Biodiversity Outcomes, at the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.
Matt Chew is an instructor of biology and society courses at ASU. He conducts a field course in 'novel ecosystems' and lectures on the 'history of biology.'
Creath is a philosopher of science who uses historical methods to study fundamental questions about the role of logic, mathematics, scientific methods and even philosophy within science.
Ellison's research and teach focus of research ethics and ethics education. She directs the School of Life Science Ethic Program, is an editor for the Online Ethics Center (onlineethics.org), and serves on the APPE board.
As founding director, Leah Gerber aims to accelerate the success of biodiversity management and sustainable biodiversity outcomes by fostering relationships among academics and decision makers.
Steven Hoffman is an immunologist, neuroscientist and philosopher who has studied how the immune system and brain interact, and currently is integrating this work into philosophical perspectives.
J. Benjamin Hurlbut is trained in the history of modern biomedical and life sciences. His research lies at the intersection of science and technology studies, bioethics and political theory.
Ann Kinzig looks at how humans shape and influence their natural environments and what this means for human health and Earth's ecosystems. Her work focuses on ecosystem services and the resilience of natural-resource systems.
Laubichler is a theoretical biologist and historian of science. He is the co-director of the ASU-SFI Center for Biosocial Complex Systems and associate director of ASU's Origins Project,
Jane Maienschein and her team research embryology, genetics, and cell biology. She specializes in the history and philosophy of biology and the way biology, bioethics and bio-policy play out in society.
Gary Marchant frequently lectures about the intersection of law and science at national and international conferences. He's authored more than 150 articles and book chapters on various issues related to emerging technologies.
Ben A. Minteer is an environmental ethicist and conservation scholar who writes on species extinction, wilderness, zoos, and the evolution of American environmental thought and practice.
Using the honey bee as a model, Regents' Professor Page has dissected their complex foraging division of labor at all levels of biological organization from gene networks to complex social interactions.
Charles Perrings is co-director of School of Life Sciences Ecoservices Group—a group researching the interactions between society and the biophysical environment.
Kathleen B. Pigg is a paleobotanist who studies fossil plants that are related to modern groups of conifers, ferns and woody hardwood trees. Her group studies the origin of plants of the temperate deciduous biome.
