Hakim Abdi, PhD


I am a researcher at Lund University in Sweden. My work is centered around understanding human-environment systems using an interdisciplinary approach that combines biophysical and socioecological data.

I use a variety of tools, including satellite remote sensing, geographic information systems and statistical modeling, to try to understand human impacts on the carbon cycle and net primary production (NPP). NPP is the amount carbon plants remove from the atmosphere through photosynthesis and store as phytomass.

Aside from my PhD project, I am also interested in the impacts of anthropogenic processes on the distribution of migrant Arctic and sub-Arctic bird species and the quality of their breeding and wintering habitats. The drive behind this interest is that I've been an avid birdwatcher since the age of 14.

Since 1999 I've worked within various sectors including private, government, and academia in 8 countries spanning 3 continents.

I have a Master's in Geoinformatics from the University of M√ľnster in Germany and the New University of Lisbon in Portugal.
