As part of the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Science Seminar Series, Dr. Sarah Church will give a talk titled "Systems Thinking and Farmers' Decision-making: Implications for Conservation and Adoption and Messaging" at noon on Wednesday, November 13 in 126 Barnard Hall.
Sarah Church is an Assistant Professor of Planning in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University. She has professional and research experience in multiple sectors including non-profit, private, municipal, state government, and university contexts. Sarah completed a Masters of Planning at the University of Utah and a Ph.D. in Planning at the University of British Columbia – both focusing on stakeholder engagement and watershed planning.
During her time at Purdue, she worked on many projects including understanding successful watershed planning processes, farmers’ motivations and barriers to conservation adoption, as well as climate change communication in the agriculture sector. She plans to continue to research behavior change processes across urban and working landscapes, particularly how social learning and systems thinking influence environmental knowledge and behaviors. When not teaching, researching or writing, Sarah hikes and cycles with her family, and plays the violin in the community.
