Dr. Vladimir Kricsfalusy, Associate Professor in the University of Saskatchewan’s School of Environment and Sustainability, was appointed a PCUH Affiliate in May 2014. Before coming to the University of Saskatchewan in 2009, Professor Kricsfalusy’s held research and/or teaching positions at Uzhhorod National University (Ukraine), Prešov University (Slovakia) and the University of Toronto. His academic interests and research are interdisciplinary, focusing on biodiversity conservation in both Canada and Ukraine (especially Transcarpathia). He has an extensive publications list that includes above a dozen books and chapters in books, as well as more than hundred peer-reviewed and expository articles. Trained as an ecologist, Prof. Kricsfalucy’s work, however, crosses the boundaries between the natural and social sciences. This has led to his recent work and interest in cultural patterning and community development aspects of agriculture and rangeland management on the Canadian prairies, especially as it relates to Ukrainian Canadians.
