Faculty Spotlight

Peter McIntyre

I am an aquatic conservation ecologist. Working with a wide range of collaborators, I develop management approaches that balance human interests with protecting biodiversity. Our work is worldwide in scope, using detailed field studies at sites in New York, the Great Lakes, East Africa, Southeast Asia, and Hawaii to gain general insights and identify global patterns. Our goal is to achieve sustainable use of freshwater resources that maintains the integrity of river and lake ecosystems.
