Dr. Loescher’s career has been at the nexus of science, engineering and project development. Formally educated as an Ecosystem Scientist. He received his PhD and MSc from the University of Florida. He was the second hire for the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON), a first-of-its continental-scale ecology major research facility that integrates science, engineering and project management. Hank has lead multiple NEON Project Science Teams (i.e., Instruments, Mobile Platforms, Aquatic) through the important NSF/NSB Review stage and early construction. Hank was also part of a small elite team that crafted NEON’s Continental Design, and has contributed to numerous engineering efforts. He is currently directing NEON’s strategic development efforts (presentations available), and focusing on public/private enterprises. His research interests include determining the biotic and abiotic controls on ecosystem-level carbon and energy balance across spatial and temporal scales. He continues to publish, and has over 70 peer review papers. Prior to his tenure at NEON, he was at Oregon State University administrating the DOE AmeriFlux Program.
