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.
Across our five research fields, we are interested in detecting and understanding global dynamics in human-environment systems, with a focus on human land use, its underlying societal drivers, and its ecological consequences. We rely on state-of-the-art statistical and computational tools to comprehensively capure these dynamics and to test and develop theory on their interrelationships. We develop application-ready tools and data for policy makers, resource managers, and other scientists.
