My research interests are based on the study of human-environment interactions within the field of Land Change Science through the use of remote sensing technologies. All of my research is undertaken with highly interdisciplinary research teams, which involve both physical and social scientists. Within such interdisciplinary teams, my particular strengths lie in the remote sensing of vegetation dynamics; land use and land cover change; the implications of scale and scaling in remote sensing and modeling analyses; and people and parks. My work of understanding environmental change has a particular concentration on conservation and protected areas, as well as savanna science. While my work is applicable globally, I have a strong regional focus on southern Africa.
I teach a suite of remote sensing analysis and human-environment courses.
