ENV welcomes new faculty member!
Dr. Brie Berry will join the department in August 2023. Dr. Berry studies systems of production-consumption-disposal to understand how we can build economies that are more fair and less wasteful. From wasted food to thrift shops, Brie’s work explores the social, economic, and environmental value of the stuff we buy, sell, and throw away. Trained as an economic and environmental anthropologist, Brie has a background in interdisciplinary collaboration and a strong interest in public policy. Brie holds a PhD in Anthropology & Environmental Policy from the University of Maine.
