Education:

  •  Ph.D. Environmental Sciences (Ecology), 1988: The University of Virginia, Charlottesville (secondary fields: surficial hydrology and microclimatology).
  •  MS Biology (Ecology), 1983: Kent State University, Kent, OH.
  • BS Biology, 1981:  Muskingum College, New Concord, Ohio. Magna cum Laude, With Distinction in Biology (Computer Science and Speech/Communications minors, Environmental Science bridge program).

Current research interests:

Dr. Reiter’s primary research is in integrated ecosystem management, focusing on the development and application of stakeholder-based methods for addressing wicked environmental problems from a systems perspective, and he has received multiple university and national awards for his teaching and research. He is a past President of the international Interdisciplinary Environmental Association, Associate Editor for the international journal Interdisciplinary Environmental Review, Founding Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Sustainability Research, and co-chair of the Sustainable Human and Environmental Systems Roundtable, a growing effort to establish guidelines and proposals for the development of interdisciplinary and higher-order environmental courses and programs in higher education.

Dr. Reiter served as the lead PI in Integrated Assessment for the Environmental Cooperative Science Center, a NOAA-sponsored consortium that successfully performed national-caliber research in integrated assessment and increased the number of underrepresented students in environmentally related disciplines. He is also a principal developer of Combined Ecological/Societal Systems Modeling (CESSM) and the Integrated Assessment and Ecosystem Management Protocol, a combination that provides a promising approach to meet the need for a truly integrated ecosystem management method. Dr. Reiter has been a PI or Co-PI for over $26 million in funded individual and consortium grants from sources including NOAA, USDA, DuPont Foundation, and Carnegie-Mellon, has over 40 refereed publications in several different fields of study, and has been invited to numerous countries to present his work (including an opening parallel workshop of the UN Rio+20 summit in Brazil and the follow-up symposium in England). His goal is to emphasize the importance of making scientifically informed, broadly based decisions concerning present and future environmental concerns, and to help ensure that such scientifically informed individuals exist in the near future.
