Jared L Talley is a doctoral student in the Department of Philosophy at Michigan State University with a focus in environmental philosophy and ethics. He received a BA in Philosophy from Boise State University in 2014 and an MPA in Environmental Policy and Natural Resource Management from Boise State University in 2016. His research interests are in the philosophy of environmental governance, concentrating on the roles of science and community engagement in environmental policy and management. To this end, he is focused on better understanding how diverse communities construct relationships to their environments, how policy programs interpret and manage for these relationships, and how the nature of the ecological sciences provides opportunity and obstacles for environmental management. His free time is spent on rivers, in mountains, and losing himself in science fiction movies.
