Tyler Lark is an Environment & Resources MS student working with Professor Holly Gibbs on issues in land use change and bioenergy. His initial research is focused on quantifying the United States Land Reserve and identifying the opportunities and constraints of expanding agriculture to meet the growing demand for food, feed, and fuel production. Related interests include reconciling production with climate and conservation efforts and assessing the health impacts of agricultural expansion and land use change.
Prior to joining SAGE in Spring 2012, Tyler completed his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with a second major in Mathematics at UW-Madison. As an undergrad, he worked on developing an innovative biofuel stove and associated land use strategy to promote waste utilization and reforestation, and served for 2 years as a Project Manager of the Engineers Without Borders - Haiti program. Outside of SAGE, Tyler enjoys new adventures, traveling, and any snow or water sport involving skis, sails, or a board.
