Biography:

Dr. Joanna Endter-Wada is an Associate Professor of Natural Resource Policy and Social Science.  Her research generally focuses on conceptualizing and analyzing linkages between humans and biophysical aspects of ecosystems, with emphases on water, public land, forest resources, fisheries and urban landscapes. She is currently conducting research on human dimensions of drought and climate change, urban landscape water use, and wetlands.  The National Science Foundation, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Western Water Assessment (NOAA) are funding her current research projects. 

During her professional career, Dr. Endter-Wada has been involved in numerous activities related to translation between academic disciplines and translation of science to the general public. She has directed and been involved in interdisciplinary academic programs and research projects.  She has served at state and federal levels in policy-related appointments.  For the State of Utah, she served as Chairperson of the Utah Fish Health Policy Board (1998-2006, two terms), Chairperson of the Utah Forest Practices Task Force (1996, which resulted in a Forest Practices Act passed by the Utah Legislature), and Member of the  Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands Advisory Council (1995-1998).  For the United States, she served as Chairperson (1996-1998) and Member (1993-1999) of the Outer Continental Shelf Advisory Board Scientific Committee, U.S. Dept. of Interior.  She has also served as Associate Editor of Society and Natural Resources (1994-1997) and reviewer for other academic journals.

At present Dr. Endter-Wada advises graduate students in the Human Dimensions of Ecosystem Science and Management degree program and in the Master of Natural Resources degree program.  Her former students have gone on to work in academia, natural resource agencies, and non-profit organizations.
