Vanessa Hull came to the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability (CSIS) in 2004 to pursue a Master of Science in Fisheries and Wildlife. Her Master's research dealt with examining interactions between a giant panda and his habitat during the course of the first giant panda reintroduction program conducted in Wolong Nature Reserve, Sichuan, China. Vanessa is now pursuing a Ph.D. degree at CSIS. Her doctoral research deals with examining spatio-temporal patterns of giant panda habitat selection in the coupled human and natural system of Wolong. While at CSIS, she has served as a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow (NESSF), National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, Michigan State University Distinguished Fellow, and Taylor International Engagement Fellow.
