  • Instructor, School of Sustainability


Mady Tyson received her PhD in Sustainability at Arizona State University. She studied how information is used and governed as a resource commons, and how this affects our ability to cooperate inter-disciplinarily and make more sustainable decisions. She specifically studied information in energy innovation networks. Whenever she gets free time, she also tries to play capoeira, experiment with algae, learn new languages and go on as many adventures as possible.
