Biography

Dr. Steve Grodsky earned his BS in Conservation and Applied Ecology from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, his MS in Wildlife Ecology for the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and his PhD in Wildlife and Conservation Biology from North Carolina State University. He conducted his postdoctoral research at the University of California, Davis, where he co-founded the Wild Energy Initiative and served as its co-director from 2017 to 2022. Currently, Steve is the Assistant Unit Leader of the New York Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment at Cornell University. Dr. Grodsky is a broadly trained, applied ecologist. He specializes in the emerging field of renewable energy ecology - the study of interactions among energy development, ecosystems, and people. His research spans diverse taxa, including vertebrates and invertebrates, and various ecosystems, spanning deserts to aquatic systems. Dr. Grodsky teaches a seminar on renewable energy ecology at Cornell University and has taught courses in ecology and entomology at other institutions.
