Trainor is a Postdoctoral Associate at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Cincinnati.

Abstract: As humans increasingly dominate the globe, they encounter multiple, often conflicting objectives that impact landscape-scale decision-making. Conservation scientists often consider trade-offs between a host of diverse ecological, economic, and social objectives. Trainor will describe spatially explicit approach to help reconcile the trade-offs among competing land-use demands from expanding renewable energy infrastructure, while maintaining productive farmlands and ecosystem function.
