  • Biography

    Luigi Boschetti joined the faculty at University of Idaho in 2012. Previously he was with the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, as Associate Research Professor (2009-2012) and Assistant Research Scientist (2005-2009). He held research fellowships at the Italian national Research Council (2004-2005), at the Institute for Environment and Sustainability of the European Commission’s Joint Research Center (2002-2004), and was a visiting scientist at the Natural Resources Institute — University of Greenwich (2000-2002).
