Elizabeth Hadly
Professor of Biology, Stanford University
Department of Geological & Environmental Sciences Senior Fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment (by courtesy)
Research Associate, Museum of Paleontology, University of California, Berkeley
Clayman Institute Faculty Voice and Influence Fellow, 2012-2013

Elizabeth A. Hadly is the Paul S. and Billie Achilles Chair of Environmental Biology, Professor of Biology, and Geological & Environmental Sciences, by courtesy.  She received her Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1995 and joined Stanford’s faculty in 1998.  Her current research, which probes how perturbations such as climatic change influence the evolution and ecology of vertebrates, involves both field and laboratory approaches.  Present field research involves collection and analysis of fossil and modern specimens from western North America, Costa Rica, the Caribbean, Patagonia and the Himalaya.  Professor Hadly founded the field of phylochronology by pioneering the study of genetic structure and diversity of populations through time, an approach that has yielded insights and predictions about ongoing and future responses of animals to global change. 

In addition to her research, Professor Hadly strives to forge new connections between scientists and non-scientists for illustrating the value of our natural lands under increasing global pressures.  To that end she, along with an artist and science educator, developed a roving Stanford course that visits parks along the track of the Yellowstone hotspot bridging geology, biology, climate and art in order to ‘see’ the world differently and to communicate about it outside traditionally scientific venues.  Professor Hadly has become an avid ‘tweeter’ and spends her spare time walking and training her border collies.

Further information can be obtained from her website.   Hadly has been named Senior Associate Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education at Stanford, beginning this upcoming 2013-2014 academic year.
