Marc is a geographer who uses remote sensing to understand land-cover change and ecosystem processes, including tropical forest loss and regrowth, forest flammability and land-cover change implications for biodiversity.
Dr. Janet Nackoney research interests lie in the use of geospatial technology for land use planning, biological conservation applications, such as wildlife habitat modeling and monitoring, and food security.
Has more than 15 years experience in software development and architect level hardware design and deployment. Has extensive experience in development of various scientific applications in GIS and Engineering.
Xiaopeng’s research focuses on characterizing land cover and land use change such as deforestation, cropland expansion and urbanization and investigating the causes and consequences of LCLUC using an interdisciplinary approach.
Software engineer specializing in web development with extensive experience in implementing full software life cycle process including requirement analysis, design, prototyping, interface implementation, testing, deployment and maintenance.
Panshi’s research interests focus on remote sensing techniques and global-scale applications of these techniques in land cover and land use change studies including land cover, 3D structure, and population changes associated with urbanization.
Jeff is primarily interested in the issues faced by climate change practically and philosophically and the use of geospatial and remote sensing technologies to inform better agriculture and forest management policies.
Andrés is interested in soundscape, deforestation, biodiversity, monitoring land cover and land use change (LCLUC), as well as the use of remote sensing applications to track and analyze landscape transformations and patterns.
Eddy Bongwele is remote sensing specialist with focus on integrating time-series multi-spectral Landsat and Lidar data for mapping forest structure (tree height and cover) and disturbances in Central Africa.
