Matthias Ruth, Vice-President (Research), University of Alberta

The University of Alberta has appointed Matthias Ruth as vice-president (research) for a five-year term effective May 1,2018.

Ruth comes to the U of A by way of Northeastern University in Boston, where he served as a professor and director of the School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs and professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

He will lead the Office of the Vice-President (Research), which supports and advances the university’s large and complex research and innovation enterprise. Through Ruth’s leadership, the university will continue to foster a deeper culture of engagement that integrates research and education more fully, and that effectively brings together people from different disciplines around basic and applied sciences for the public good.

Ruth holds a master’s degree in economics from the University of Heidelberg, Germany, and a PhD in geography from the University of Illinois, where he also received training in engineering and biology.

Ruth’s research focuses on dynamic modelling of natural resources and infrastructure systems analysis, and environmental economics and policy. Applications of his work cover the full spectrum from local to regional, to national and global environmental challenges, as well as the investment and policy opportunities these challenges present.
