Personal profile

Personal information

Alex Neidermeier is a PhD Candidate in the Environmental Geography department at the Institute for Environmental Studies IVM). Her research is currently focused on managing wildfire risk in the European Union as the climate changes, funded by the FirEUrisk project. She will be mapping relevant areas in which certain land management strategies, such as silvopastoralism and brush clearing, could be most effective and using CLUmondo to model land use scenarios relevant to climate risk.

Her master’s research focused on forest health, invasive species management, and species distribution modelling at the University of Vermont’s Rubenstein School. This research, published in the journals Forest Ecology and Management and Environmental Entomology, was funded by the US Forest Service and a grant from the Vermont Clean Energy Fund. The research contributed to the use of Leucopis spp. as a biological control for the hemlock woolly adelgid (Tsuga spp.) and understanding the opportunities and risks of invasive species transport in the wood pellet supply chain.

She also has experience in international development from her work for the US Forest Service International Program in Central Africa, Tetra Tech ARD, and years spent as an agribusiness extension agent with the US Peace Corps in Mali and Burkina Faso.
