Excellence in Research

Susan Crow, a professor in the Dept. of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, is the 2023 recipient of the CTAHR Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research.

Susan brings technical expertise and leadership to diverse tables for land-based climate action and (re)perpetuating landscape health with formal training in soil biogeochemistry and ecology. Her current research aims to target soil carbon, organic matter, and holistic aspects of health and the circular economy in Hawaiʻi and beyond. Her research group explores measures for soil health in tropical/subtropical systems and their meaning to place-based land managers, producers, and practitioners. 

As a member of the Hawaiʻi delegation to the U.S. Climate Alliance, Susan also assists with designing science-based incentives programs and policy based on best approaches to achieve meaningful climate benefits. Currently, she is the Principal Investigator of the Hawaiʻi Partnership for Climate Smart Commodities, and is building the Soil Health, Environment, and Ecosystem Resiliency – or S(HEE)R – research and training lab grounded in place-based equity and innovation pathways.
