Cross‑Appointed Professors

Tapping into diverse knowledge

Given the enormous range of issues that are encompassed in studying resources and the environment, our cross-appointed professors bring unique and varied knowledge to the student experience.

Scholars are on our cross-appointed list for many reasons. Those with asterixis (*) are open to being approached by MES applicants for the purpose of discussing supervision. They may not be able to offer funding support, but conversations about shared interested are welcomed.  

Applicants may additionally want to see our adjunct list as these individuals can provide co-supervision along with a SRES professor.
