Ingrid E. Schneider, Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Forest Resources in the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of MInnesota.

Schneider’s primary research interests focus on the human dimensions of natural resource management, particularly in recreation and nature-based tourism settings. In partnership with national forests, parks and other nature-based attractions, she studies the recreation experience, its outcomes, and the subsequent opportunities and challenges for management, planning and policy.

Most recently, Schneider’s work has focused on the impact of terrestrial invasive species on visitor preferences, diverse populations and their constraints, and constraints on physical activity on public lands. She also works on a variety of applied consumer research projects to support and sustain Minnesota's tourism industry including sustainable tourism and general market research.
