Biography

I have been involved with regional and national land-use and land-cover (LULC) change research since 1999 as a member of the Land Cover Trends project and now the LCMAP initiative. I have extensive knowledge of land change across the United States and the driving forces influencing change. My research bridges remote sensing change detection with non-remote sensing geographical analysis. I have been involved in publishing national and regional land change information, with an emphasis on regional analysis and driving forces of change. Regional works include diverse areas such as the northern Great Plains, the northeast urban corridor, the forested Southeast, and the Corn Belt.  Current research includes testing and writing up LCMAP results in use for national and regional land change reporting.
