Kelley Crews specializes in geographic information science, remote sensing, land use/land cover change, human-environment interactions, environmental policy, and global tropics especially in Thailand and Andean South America.
Thoralf Meyer's research interests lie in the field of dryland ecology. More specifically, his scientific research focuses on vegetative response to various forms of disturbance, such as fire, herbivory and land use, and land cover change in the Kalahari and Texas.
Jennifer Miller's general research interests lie at the confluence of GIScience, spatial analysis, and biogeography, specifically in the application area of species distribution modeling and movement pattern analysis. Previous research has used GIScience to address issues as broad as location privacy, voting patterns, animal movement & interaction, biodiversity, climate change, invasive species, human health, and epizootic disease spread.
James Patton's areas of activity include transition assessment and planning, differentiating instruction for students with special needs, study skills instruction, needs of college students with learning-related challenges, and issues associated with individual with disabilities who encounter the criminal justice system.
Kenneth Young specializes in policy-relevant research that informs biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. He does this by linking biogeography and landscape ecology to questions of ecosystem dynamics and aspects of global environmental and socioeconomic change. Young has been splitting his research efforts between high Andean landscapes and the tropical forests and floodplains of the western Amazon.
