I am a researcher at Lund University. My work is centered on sustainability science, particularly understanding coupled human-environment systems using interdisciplinary methods that combine biophysical and socio-ecological data. I use a variety of tools, including data from Earth-observing satellites, geographic information systems and statistical modeling, to understand human impacts on the terrestrial biosphere. I have a PhD in Geobiosphere Science from Lund University in Sweden and a Master's in Geoinformatics from the University of Münster in Germany and the New University of Lisbon in Portugal. My Bachelor’s was in Geoscience from Montclair State University in New Jersey, USA. Since 1999 I've worked within various sectors including private, government, and academia in 8 countries spanning 3 continents. Aside from my research interests, I have been an avid birdwatcher since the age of 14, and as such I am interested in the conservation of migrant Arctic and sub-Arctic birds and the quality of their breeding and wintering habitats.
