presenter photoLaurence B. Istvan, PhD Assistant Director for Operations, Office of Animal Welfare, University of Washington Laury Istvan started his career as a Research Ecologist at the Environmental Research Institute of Michigan; he then ran a natural resources management consulting firm, Istvan & Associates, and was Director of Strategy and Analytics for Volt Information Sciences. His work has centered on the intersection of people, technology and nature -- helping decision-makers, including the interested public, to understand the science that informs societies’ choices. In 2013 he joined the UW Office of Animal Welfare, switching focus from wildlife and natural environments to research animals and laboratory settings. Laury earned his undergraduate degree in Natural Resource Policy and Conservation at the University of Michigan and his Doctorate in Environmental Interpretation at the University of Washington; he is also a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt. His non-work hours are spent, to the extent possible, out-of-doors -- hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking, sailing, hunting, fishing, mushrooming, or just watching the sunrise from a sleeping bag.
