Biography

Jorge Ramos received his PhD in Arizona State University’s Environmental Life Sciences program. He has worked in Washington, DC for the Ecological Society of America as the SEEDS Student Coordinator.

At ASU working with Dr. Dan Childers in the Wetland Ecosystem Ecology Lab, his research focuses on investigating desert aquatic ecosystems in North America and their responses to different anthropogenic pressures, such as human alterations and climate change.

Jorge has served as a lab instructor, teacher, and lecturer for Environmental Sciences, General Biology, History and Philosophy of Sustainability, Fundamental of Ecology, Geography for Natural Resources, and Conservation of Biodiversity. He has also worked with teachers, high school and undergraduate students through the Sustainable Schools GK-12 Program, the Sustainability Teacher's Academy, and the SACNAS and SEEDS Student Chapters.

Jorge was born in Texas and raised in Mexico.
