We are an interdisciplinary research lab, combining backgrounds in geography, statistics, macro- and community ecology, environmental resource management, environmental social science, crop science, and agricultural biology. At the intersection of our expertise, our research aims to detect and understand global dynamics in human-environment systems, with a focus on human land use, its underlying societal drivers, and its ecological consequences. To achieve this, we develop state-of-the-art statistical and computational tools, as well as global and multi-temporal environmental and socio-economic datasets. These application-ready tools and data are directed at policy makers, resource managers, and other scientists.
