Biography

Jean Faye joined the Centre College faculty in 2018 as assistant professor of environmental studies.

Faye’s research centers on his home country, Senegal, West Africa, and the wider Sahel region. He studies ingenious land use and farming practices that improve climate change resilience and food security among some of the poorest people on the planet. These practices include agroforestry, soil fertility and nutrient management, ecological management of plant diseases, and biodiversity conservation in agricultural landscapes.

Faye uses mixed-methods in his research, ranging from ethnographic approaches embedded in cultural-political ecology to soil science analysis. He uses a range of tools from environmental geography to understand soil and productivity, indigenous adaptive capacities, and livelihood resilience in the West African Sahel.

Faye’s teaching interests include: agroforestry (farms and forests); agroecology (sustainable agriculture); global environmental health, and soil science.

Faye earned a B.S. in conservation and resource studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and an M.A. in international studies and a Ph.D. in environmental studies from the University of Oregon.
