Biography

Engelman received his bachelor of arts degree from the University of Chicago and his masters of science from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, which in 1976 awarded him a Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship.

Engelman began his career as a newspaper reporter, working for the Associated Press out of Mexico City in 1977. He subsequently worked for the Kansas City Times in Kansas City and Washington, D.C., and then for the (Denver) Rocky Mountain News as its Washington correspondent. He later joined the national reporting staff of Scripps Howard News Service, eventually serving as its science, health and environment correspondent. In 1992 he left journalism and founded a research program on population and the environment at the Population Crisis Committee, a Washington-based research and advocacy non-profit that subsequently changed its name to Population Action International (PAI). He later became vice president for research at PAI. In 1997, he was among the founders of the Center for a New American Dream and served until 2007 as chair of its board of directors. While at PAI Engelman and colleagues published reports on the linkages of population dynamics and environmental change, one of them published in the journal Nature [Cincotta, Richard P., Jennifer Wisnewski, and Robert Engelman, 2000, “Human Population in the Biodiversity Hotspots,” Nature 404:990-992.] in 2000. In 2002 and 2003, Engelman served on the faculty of Yale University as a visiting lecturer on population and the environment.
