The Matson Sustainability Science Research Laboratory is interested in sustainable agriculture, vulnerability analyses of human-environment systems, biogeochemical and ecological processes in forest and managed systems, and other areas in the emerging field of sustainability science. 

For the past 15 years, Pamela Matson has served as Dean of the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences at Stanford. As a result, the Matson Lab is currently small in size, with relatively few students.  However, we interact in research and writing with students and faculty in many other parts of Stanford and beyond.
