Thomas Sherry, Ph.D., is a Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Tulane University. Extensively supported by the National Science Foundation, he studies the ecology, evolution, and increasingly the conservation of tropical forest birds and their ecosystems and migratory birds particularly in the Caribbean region. He worked with many environmental community partners via his Conservation Biology course since the inception of service learning at Tulane.

He participates in diverse environmental initiatives at Tulane, involving the Tulane-Xavier Center for BioEnvironmental Research, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies, Payson Center for International Development, Tulane Law School courses and Environmental Summits, A Studio in the Woods, and multiple study-abroad programs. Sherry is researching and communicating the imperative of  protecting biological diversity to sustain our own species, particularly regarding the complex threats and opportunities associated with habitat degradation and climate change. He is developing a new multi-disciplinary, solutions-based course on climate change involving service and engaged learning, and design thinking.

Sherry holds the Siegel Professorship in Social Entrepreneurship from 2016-2021.
