Solomon G Haile, PhD

Associate Professor and Coordinator GIS program


I received my B.S. in Forestry from Alemaya University, Ethiopia; M.S. in Tropical Forestry from Wagningen University, The Netherlands; and a PhD in Forest Resources and Conservation from University of Florida.

Prior to my PhD study, I was a teaching faculty in the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Asmara, Eritrea for five years. From 2007 to 2010, I worked as an associate post-doctoral in Department of Soil and Water Science, where I studied biogeochemical interface plant-soil, with emphasis ecosystem level services of trees and tree-based carbon sequestration.

I moved to Nashville in June 2010 to join Tennessee State University. My research and extension education focus include:

  • sustainability of tree-based bioenergy biomass feedstock production, 
  • ecosystem level services of trees inside and outside forest lands, 
  • and applied Geospatial Sciences.
