Mark Moritz is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the Ohio State University. He uses a transdisciplinary approach to study complex social-ecological systems. His collaborative research projects with colleagues in the US and Cameroon have examined how pastoralists sustainably use common-pool grazing resources in a situation of open access, whether and how pastoral mobility affects the transmission of infectious livestock diseases, and regime shifts in floodplain fisheries.
