Natsios noted that Dr. Ruyle is an ecologist by education and practice and has been working at the nexus of natural resource management and conflict. She teaches courses on conflict, natural resource management, and policy. She has lived in four countries and traveled to over seventy countries during her career. Her research and publications span a variety of disciplines.

“Dr. Ruyle’s work has been recognized with the UN’s Equator Prize Initiative and the Dean’s Award for Interdisciplinary teams,” said Natsios, “She is currently building a program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo focused on supporting entrepreneurship in regions of conflict, conservation concern, and limited connectivity (EC3),” he added.

Dr. Ruyle will focus on the Scowcroft Institute and the Bush School research agenda and grant-writing efforts.
