Erin Riordan

Postdoctoral Research Associate I

I am an applied ecologist working at the intersection of plants, people, and climate. I use quantitative tools, including statistical models and spatial analyses, to understand how plants respond to climate with the goal of promoting ecological and human health and resilience. My work embraces transdisciplinary approaches to climate adaptation in complex socio-ecological systems, including restoration of ecological and cultural landscapes, arid food systems, natural resource management, and biodiversity conservation. I am also a research associateĀ at the Desert Laboratory on Tumamoc Hill.
