Evan P. Economo

I am a biologist with broad interests in the ecology and evolution of biodiversity.  I was born in Montreal, Canada, and grew up North Carolina, USA, before pursuing undergraduate work at the University of Arizona and graduate work at the University of Texas at Austin.  I was a fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Michigan from 2009-2012.  Since 2012 I have been a faculty member at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology where I lead the Biodiversity and Biocomplexity Unit.  In academic year 2021-2022, I was the Mary I. Bunting fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University.  I have also served as Associate Ombudsperson for OIST from 2019-2022.
