Rick Relyea is the Director of the Darrin Fresh Water Institute at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He also serves as Director of the Jefferson Project at Lake George, a groundbreaking partnership between Rensselaer, IBM, and the FUND for Lake George. For the Jefferson Project, Rick leads a team of scientists, engineers, computer scientists, and artists who are using highly advanced science and technology to understand, predict, and enable resilient ecosystems. Together, the team has built the “Smartest Lake in the World” at Lake George (NY), using an intelligent sensor network, cutting-edge experiments, and advanced computer modelling. The research is currently expanding to other lakes in the region as The Jefferson Project builds the future of freshwater protection. From 1999 to 2014, Rick was at the University of Pittsburgh. In 2005, he was named the Chancellor’s Distinguished Researcher and in 2014 he received the Tina and David Bellet Award for Teaching Excellence. From 2007 to 2014, he also served as the director of the university’s field station, the Pymatuning Laboratory of Ecology, where he oversaw a diverse set of ecological field courses and facilitated researchers from around the world.

Rick has taught thousands of undergraduate students in introductory ecology, behavioural ecology, and evolution and nearly 200 undergraduate students have worked in his research group. He has published more than 170 peer-reviewed journal articles in Ecology, Ecology Letters, American Naturalist, Environmental Pollution, PNAS, and other leading ecological journals. His research is recognized throughout the world and spans a wide range of ecological and evolutionary topics, including animal behaviour, sexual selection, ecotoxicology, disease ecology, community ecology, ecosystem ecology, and landscape ecology. Currently, his research focuses on aquatic habitats and the diverse species that live in these ecosystems. Rick is a co-author on the best-selling Environmental Science for the AP Course, Third Edition.
