About our Speaker

Dr. Jeremy James has served as Director of the University of California Sierra Foothill Research and Extension Center since 2012.  His research program centers on understanding climate change impacts on California grasslands and how ranchers that use these systems for livestock production can adapt to these impacts. He also is involved in several national and international projects that are focused on understanding how to restore arid land systems following catastrophic fire or disturbance.  Dr. James completed his doctoral work at the University of California Davis in 2004.  Following this program and prior to his current position, he served as a research scientist in eastern Oregon for the USDA Agricultural Research Service.
