Quinney College of Natural Resources
Researcher of the Year
Jacopo Baggio has been at USU since 2015 and since then has been routinely invited to international conferences and workshops. His research, which focuses on identifying the drivers underlying the resilience of social-ecological systems, is interdisciplinary and collaborative, and he has been instrumental in revolutionizing the culture of the department of Environment and Society to one that wins NSF grants and publishes in high-impact journals. In his short time here at USU, he has published eight peer-reviewed journal articles and has had four more accepted for publication, which appear in prestigious publications such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Environmental Psychology, and the International Journal of the Commons.
