Description

Victoria Donovan is an ecologist completing her PhD at the University of Nebraska, in Lincoln. Her dissertation research focuses on system transformations driven by disturbance, with an emphasis on large-scale wildfire patterns in the Great Plains. In particular, she is interested in integrating concepts of resilience theory into wildfire research and management in the Great Plains biome in order to unravel some of the complex dynamics surrounding wildfire and ecosystem resilience to perturbation. Her research interests include landscape ecology, resilience and complexity science, and wildlife ecology.
