Tania Maxwell

Research Scholar

Biodiversity, Ecology, and Conservation Research Group

Biodiversity and Natural Resources Program


Tania Maxwell is a research scholar in the Biodiversity, Ecology, and Conservation Research Group of the IIASA Biodiversity and Natural Resources Program. Her interests include forest, soil, and coastal ecology, biogeochemistry, global changes, spatial modeling, programming in R, data analysis, and reproducible coding. She is currently working on the Plant-FATE model as part of the RESIST project, looking into how natural and managed ecosystems across a drought gradient respond to future changes in climate.

Prior to joining IIASA, she was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Cambridge in the UK, where she worked on global soil carbon mapping and modeling in tidal marshes.

She holds a double degree PhD in Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems from the University of Bordeaux, France and in Forest Sciences from Laval University in Quebec, Canada. She obtained her MSc in Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution from the University Paris-Saclay, France, and her BA in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley, USA.
