Alex Zvoleff

Senior Director of Resilience Science 

Alex is the Senior Director of Resilience Science in the Moore Center for Science at Conservation International. He leads research on the role of nature in supporting climate resilience, pathways for transformative adaptation to climate change, and the development of new methods and tools that integrate large interdisciplinary datasets to study interactions among climate, land use and land cover change, and human-wellbeing. His work uses statistics and spatial modeling to assimilate data from a broad range of sources to ensure the best possible information is available, and accessible by non-expert audiences, to inform conservation decisions. Alex received his Ph.D. in geography in a joint program at San Diego State University and the University of California, Santa Barbara, and has a master’s from Columbia University.
