Shibu Jose

Growing up on a small agroforestry farm in India, Shibu Jose found an interest in the land management practice, which combines both agriculture and forestry, at an early age. That interest in agroforestry morphed into a passion as Jose began his bachelor’s degree in forestry at Kerala Agricultural University in Kerala, India.

Jose, now the associate dean in the CAFNR Office of Research, has spent his distinguished career researching a variety of topics, including agroforestry practices and ecological sustainability. Jose recently added to his long list of accolades after being named a 2020 Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
