Gregory L Simon PhD

Associate Professor of Geography 

and Environmental Studies

University of Colorado Denver

Welcome to my home page. Please explore the tabs at the top of the page to learn about my research and teaching interests, including a description of past and current research projects, links to publications and courses of instruction. 


As a Geographer, I am fundamentally interested in the relationship between humans and the environment. My research and teaching pursuits challenge conventional wisdoms about human interactions with nature and provide insights supporting greater social and ecological vitality and equity. I hold longstanding projects in the American West and India, where I examine strategies of conservation and development amidst profound social and environmental change.
