Peter Ibsen, PhD

Peter is Research Ecologist working at the Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center in Denver, Colorado. 

Peter is trained as a Botanist and Ecologist, and calls himself an Urban Ecologist. His research examines the how interactions of climate and land cover change within urban ecosystems influences the quantification, and resulting valuation, of ecosystem services. He specializes in the modelling and mapping of extreme urban heat at microscales within cities, analyzing climate and land use drivers of monarch abundances, and the integration of in-situ low-cost sensor data and high-resolution land cover data though multivariate analysis and machine learning models.
