The extensive research, teaching and service activities of Dr. Matthias Ruth are all motivated by the belief that an understanding of complex environmental issues requires integration of insights from the engineering, natural, social and health sciences as well as active dialog across the science-society divide. A pioneer in the field of ecological economics and industrial ecology, Dr. Ruth combines his interdisciplinary background in economics, geography, engineering, and biology to conduct basic and applied research on non-renewable and renewable resource use, industrial and infrastructure systems analysis, and environmental economics and policy. Much of that research is informed by active collaboration with decision makers - all in an effort to contribute to society's handling of complex environmental challenges, and with the goal of advancing research methods and tools in the process.
