Landscape Ecology, Global Change, Biogeochemistry & Sustainable Ecosystem Management
My research investigates the ecology of human-managed ecosystems at local and global scales towards the goal of informing sustainable stewardship of the biosphere in the Anthropocene.
• Ecosynth: Inexpensive tools for scanning landscapes in 3D
• GLOBE: Online tools for global synthesis of local knowledge
• Anthromes (anthropogenic biomes): global analysis of human/ecosystem interactions
• Anthropogenic Ecotope Mapping: High-resolution ecological mapping of anthropogenic landscapes
• Measuring long-term changes in land use and biogeochemistry across rural China
