Matthew Turner is a professor of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research concerns, in broad terms, nature-society relations in dryland West Africa. Using political ecology frameworks, he has conducted research on questions of environmental governance, resource-related conflict, pastoral livelihoods, property institutions, dryland degradation, vegetative dynamics, food security, and climate change vulnerability. His work often involves mixed methods combining qualitative and quantitative data and analysis in novel ways. As someone with strong commitments to the rural people with whom he works, he often finds it necessary to critically engage with environmental science and development practices that directly or indirectly shape their lives.
IBS is committed to advancing knowledge of society's most pressing challenges, and to pursuing solutions to those challenges through innovative and interdisciplinary research, education, and engagement in the world.
