My work is centered on sustainability science, particularly understanding coupled human-environment systems using interdisciplinary methods that combine biophysical and socio-ecological data. I primarily use data from Earth-observing satellites, geographic information systems and statistical modeling, to understand human impacts on the terrestrial biosphere. Since 1999 I've worked within various sectors including private, government, and academia in 8 countries spanning 3 continents.
I have been an avid birder since the age of 14, and as such I am interested in the conservation of Afro-Palearctic migrant bird species and the quality of their breeding and wintering habitats.
I have a PhD in Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science from Lund University in Sweden and an MSc in Geospatial Technologies from the University of Münster in Germany and the New University of Lisbon in Portugal. I received my BSc in Geoscience from Montclair State University in New Jersey, USA.
