Dr. Moroney enjoys working at the interface between society and natural resources. Her areas of research and expertise include social assessment and stakeholder engagement regarding natural resource related topics including bioenergy, forestry, irrigation, and farmland.
She has worked on several multi-disciplinary teams examining how communities view and use their natural resources. These large scale projects have included the Northwest Advanced Renewables Allience (NARA) which examined the feasibility of a Pacific Northwest wood to biojetfuel supply chain, and more recently the Treasure Valley Water Atlas, a project that looked at the movement of water through Idaho’s Treasure Valley from biogeophysical as well as social perspectives.
Dr. Jillian Moroney is an Idaho native and happy to be living and researching in her home state. She earned her Ph.D. in Environmental Science and her M.A. in Bioregional Planning and Community Design, both from University of Idaho, and her B.A. in Geology from Western Washington University.
