About Andrew J. Kerkhoff

Drew Kerkhoff joined Kenyon's faculty in 2005 after earning a Ph.D. at the University of New Mexico and completing a postdoc at the University of Arizona. He is a quantitative ecologist whose research is motivated by two key environmental challenges: global change (including climate and land use) and biodiversity conservation. He leads the Kenyon Macroecology Lab, where students use computational and field-based approaches to analyze the distribution and evolution of plant biodiversity and the functional role of Earth's vegetation in the global carbon cycle.
Along with his research, Professor Kerkhoff also works to improve the quantitative, computational and data-intensive components of the biology curriculum, to better integrate writing instruction into science education, and to increase public understanding of evolution, biodiversity and global change.
