Lauren is a Research Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and a Senior Fellow for Climate & Environment at Dartmouth's Institute of Arctic Studies. She studies the impacts of rapid environmental change on insect population and community dynamics in northern ecosystems. Her current research tests how Arctic warming impacts insect-wildlife-human interactions. In addition to research, Lauren is PI on a NSF grant for international science outreach in Greenland and Antarctica and she teaches in Dartmouth's Environmental Studies Department. She has a Ph.D. in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Dartmouth, and a M.S. in Entomology and a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Maryland.
