Biography

Dr. Hall currently manages the Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area under both the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP). SERDP is DoD’s environmental science and technology research program, whereas ESTCP is DoD’s environmental science and technology demonstration and validation program. The Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area encompass natural resources, climate change (vulnerability and impact assessment, adaptation science, and land use and carbon management), and air quality issues related to fugitive dust and fire emissions. Dr. Hall’s program responsibilities also include oversight of a long-term, ecosystem-based management program: the Defense Coastal/Estuarine Research Program (DCERP) at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Dr. Hall also is responsible for assisting policy developers and makers within DoD in understanding the climate change science-policy interface. Dr. Hall currently serves as DoD’s representative to the federal Ecological Systems Subcommittee and Interagency National Climate Assessment Working Group, the latter of which he also serves as the Vice-Chair. Dr. Hall is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and served as a nuclear-trained officer in the U.S. submarine force. His graduate degrees are from Washington State University.
