Jacquelyn Gill

As a paleoecologist and biogeographer, Jacquelyn Gill is interested in using the natural experiments of the past to inform conservation in the Anthropocene. Dr. Gill applies an interdisciplinary approach combining paleoenvironmental reconstructions from lake sediments, modern field ecology, and modeling. Research in the Gill Lab focuses on climate change, extinction, and biotic interactions through time, from species to communities to ecosystems.  Professor Gill is a Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center Faculty Fellow for 2016-17.
