We are a geospatial data science research group at the University of Delaware. We use multi-scalar satellite images and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) tools to investigate a wide range of environmental issues such as crop responses to weather variability, smallholder farming, vegetation trend, food and nutrition security, and urban sustainability. We conduct our research in different parts of the world including Asia, Africa and the USA.
Are you planning to join a vibrant research group for your graduate studies? Or are you an undergrad looking for research experience? Come work with us!! Contact us for more details on how to apply to UD Geography.
