Name: Carol J. Pierce Colfer


Bio: I am an anthropologist who has worked on teams with agricultural scientists, educational and health researchers, engineers, fisheries and marine scientists, family planning experts, ecologists and most consistently foresters. I have had long term ethnographic experience in the US, Oman, and Indonesia; and collaborative research experience throughout the tropics (specifically Latin America, Asia, and Africa). My substantive area of focus has been people and forests and ways to strengthen their voices in policymaking, planning, implementation and assessment. Another area of expertise has been gender with a general interest in inclusivity more broadly.

Specialization: inter/transdisciplinary and multi-scale collaboration, gender, health, adaptive collaborative management of forests
