Marissa Matsler, Ph.D.

Marissa is an interdisciplinary scholar. Her work combines the insights of political ecology, science and technology studies (STS), urban ecology, and urban planning to examine the conflicts between green infrastructure as a conceptual greenspace planning tool and an engineering practice on-the-ground, in particular understanding the consequences of green infrastructure policy on marginalized communities and urban ecosystems. She is currently a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Maryland, College Park. She has a PhD in Urban Studies from Portland State University, a Masters of Environmental Management from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental, and a BS in Marine Biology from Oregon State University.
