Dr. Madhusudan Katti is Director of Science, Technology, and Society and Associate Professor in the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program for Leadership in Public Science and in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources at North Carolina State University. He is the Editor-in-Chief of The Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America. His work centers Reconciliation Ecology—the application of evolutionary ecology to find real-world solutions for reconciling biodiversity conservation with human wellbeing. An ecologist by training, he now engages local communities and the broader public in studying how human activities and histories of colonization and segregation shape the distribution of nature and biodiversity in urban areas. He is also interested in the ethics of ecological research, nature conservation, and of how humans learn to live with other species. He is actively engaged in rethinking and redesigning his own research and the teaching of ecology and conservation biology within a broader framework of decolonizing science.
