Sharon Jae Hall is an ecosystem scientist who explores the ecology of native and managed ecosystems that sustain people and other organisms within the community of life.
To achieve these goals, Professor Hall and her research team focus on understanding the ecological feedbacks between humans and the environment. For example, her team is exploring the biodiversity of cities, as well as people's relationship to plants and wildlife in their home environment. Her team also explores how urban air pollution affects ecosystem health and functioning, and they explore how villages in the developing world cope with rapid environmental change, such as biological species invasions.
