"Ingrid Crane Burke"

Ingrid "Indy" Burke received her bachelors in Biology at Middlebury College (1980), and received her doctorate in Botany at the University of Wyoming (1987). She served as Assistant, Associate, then Full Professor at Colorado State University from 1988 until 2008, and during that time served as PI of the Shortgrass Steppe Long Term Ecological Research Project and as Co-Director of the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, teaching and conducting research in the areas of ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry. In 2008 she moved to the University of Wyoming to serve as Director, then Dean, of the Haub School and Ruckelshaus Institute. In 2016, Prof. Burke moved to Yale to lead the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies as Dean.
