Director, Citrin Family GIS/Applied Spatial Analysis Laboratory
I use remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and spatial analysis to study environmental and social systems. These tools (collectively referred to as "geospatial science and technology") can be applied to many types of problems. In recent years I've used them to measure the optical properties of lakes from satellite imagery, assess changes in the land use and hydrology of irrigated-agricultural landscapes in Egypt and China, and monitor the spatial and temporal dynamics of vegetation cover in southern Africa. Working with colleagues in the social sciences, I've also used spatial analysis to map patterns of segregation and diversity across the US and to use landscape-scale spatial phenomena as a window onto economic policies.
