Jose Roman (disambiguation) Joe Roman is a conservation biologist, academic, and author of the books Whale and  . Listed: Dispatches from America's Endangered Species Act His  conservation research includes studies of the historical population size of whales, the role of cetaceans in the  nitrogen cycle, the relationship between biodiversity and disease, and the genetics of invasions.  He is the founding editor of "Eat the Invaders", a website dedicated to controlling invasive species by eating them.
Roman is a research associate professor in the
Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources and a Fellow at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics at the University of Vermont. He earned an  AB with Honors in Visual and Environmental Studies from Harvard University in 1985 and an  MA in wildlife ecology and conservation from the University of Florida. Roman was awarded his  PhD from Harvard's Department Organismic and Evolutionary Biology in 2003; his dissertation was titled Tracking Anthropogenic Change in the North Atlantic Ocean with Genetic Tools. During his PhD, he co-authored, with  Stephen Palumbi, a paper for the journal that presented evidence that whale populations had been considerably larger prior to whaling than had previously been thought. Science  By 2009, he was working with the Gund Institute with a Science and Technology Policy Fellowship from the  American Association for the Advancement of Science, and also beginning a collaboration with the  United States Environmental Protection Agency looking at loss of biodiversity. He had a Fulbright Fellowship at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Brazil in 2012, and he was the 2014–15   Sarah and Daniel Hrdy Visiting Fellow in Conservation Biology at Harvard. Born in  Queens, New York, Roman lives in Vermont.
Listed won the 2012 Rachel Carson Environment Book Award from the Society of Environmental Journalists.
