Alexander Felson, PhD
Yale University, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and School of Architecture
Alexander Felson is an ecologist and landscape architect whose research focuses on bridging ecology with urban design and infrastructure. At Yale University, he is an Assistant Professor at the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the School of Architecture.  His ecological design projects synthesize ecosystem processes and functions with landscape history and human use patterns. Felson also served as an associate and director of ecological design and sustainability at EDAW, where he oversaw a number of projects including the Planyc2030 Million Trees reforestation project for New York City. He is currently overseeing the implementation of experimental plots, designed as public structures, which are used for the study of carbon accumulation, sustainable management and biodiversity. Dr. Felson has lectured and published a number of critical works on landscape identity, public space and ecosystem services. He holds a B.A. in Botany and an M.S. in Land Resources from the University of Wisconsin, a Masters’ in Landscape Architecture from Harvard, and a Ph.D in Ecology and Evolution from Rutgers University.
