I use distributed datasets (remote sensing and crowd-sourced 'citizen-science' data) and spatio-temporal analysis tools to study interactions among land-use, climate, and biodiversity. Specifically, I'm interested in:
1) climate change impacts on biodiversity and agriculture,
2) drivers of and barriers to land-use change and implications for climate and biodiversity,
3) using the internet and mobile-devices to scale between field-based measurement and regional models.
