Jordan Karubian, Ph.D., recently received the Lynton Award for Engaged Scholarship in recognition of his ”community engagement, teaching, and research focused on understanding and reversing human-caused environmental degradation and associated loss of biodiversity.” Dr. Karubian combines work in the classroom and lab at Tulane with research and capacity building in biodiversity hotspots, such as Ecuador and Papua New Guinea. His basic approach is to blend research, engaged teaching, and local community engagement to improve the quality of his research while achieving real world conservation gains. His work is supported by the National Science Foundation, the US Fish & Wildlife Service, and others; for more information visit Professor Karubian has helped extend the geographic range of our social innovation work and has strengthened ties between the Tulane community of scholars and students and indigenous residents of ecologically sensitive locations.

Dr. Karubian held the Kylene and Brad Beers Professorship I and Cole Fellowship from 2013 – 2018.
