Salas, Eric Ariel L.

Eric Ariel Salas completed his bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering at the University of San Carlos - Technological Center (USC-TC) in Cebu, Philippines and his master's degree in Geo-Information at Wageningen University and Research (WUR), The Netherlands.

Pervez, Shahriar

Md Shahriar Pervez’s training and experience emphasized water resource system analysis, hydrogeology, large-scale hydrological modeling process, applied remote sensing to map risks of flood and drought, and the design, implementation, and uncertainty assessment of operational flood monitoring systems.

Midekisa, Alemayehu

Dr. Midekisa graduated with his Ph.D. in 2014 under the supervision of Dr. Michael Wimberly. He is currently employed as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). His graduate research focused on quantifying the spatial and temporal drivers of malaria using high spatial resolution and high temporal resolution earth observation data in the Ethiopian highlands. Dr.

Lindquist, Erik

Erik Lindquist is interested in how human beings use space and, specifically, how this affects ecosystem function at local, regional and global scales. He is currently studying data fusion approaches to large area, high resolution landscape characterization and change detection in the tropical forests of the Congo River Basin. He has lived and worked in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo as a consultant for multiple conservation groups including Wildlife Conservation Society, Frankfurt Zoological Society and World Wide Fund for Nature.

Lind, Brianna

I am broadly interested in studying spatial and temporal heterogeneity in tropical ecosystems while incorporating ecological theory, modeling, and an understanding of how climate change will impact ecosystem processes.  My current research focuses on biodiversity theory and the physical and biotic controls on termite distribution, abundance, and diversity in African savannas.

Li, Zhengpeng

Zhengpeng Li is interested in computer simulation of the ecological system using remote sensing images. He is currently working at EROS full time and studies part-time as a PhD student. His work focuses on simulation of carbon trends in the United States. Zhengpeng earned his bachelor's degree in Chemistry and a master's degree in Environmental Science in Peking University (Beijing University) in Beijing, China. He came to the USA in 2001 and earned a master's degree in Computer Science in 2004. 

Homer, Collin Gordon

Collin Homer is a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Loveland. Collin is also a biologist/research manager with USGS at EROS, where he serves as the Project Manager/Research Scientist for both the Land Characterization and National Land Cover Database projects. During the past 17 years, his research efforts have focused on developing landscape scale remote sensing models, methods and databases that incorporate image development, ancillary data modeling, field sampling and GIS analysis to address land cover and biological issues. The goal of Mr. Homer's Ph.D.

Dwomoh, Francis Kwabena

Francis K. Dwomoh is currently a PhD candidate in Geospatial Science & Engineering with Dr. Michael Wimberly as his advisor. Francis is using satellite earth observation and geospatial analysis to study the interactions between climatic and human influences on the fire regime in West African tropical forest ecosystems. His research aims to improve our understanding of the spatio-temporal dynamics of tropical forest fires, fire-mediated ecosystem state transitions, and forest degradation as well as future vulnerability of forests in the region.

Alemu, Henok

Dr. Henok Alemu got his Ph.D. degree in Geospatial Sciences and Engineering in 2015 under the supervision of Dr. Gabriel Senay and Dr. Michael Wimberly. His PhD dissertation focused on contemporary evapotranspiration dynamics and drivers in the Nile River Basin in Africa using satellite-derived and model-assimilated data. Henok holds a B.Sc. degree in Geology from Mekelle University in Ethiopia and a Professional Masters degree in Geoinformation Science & Earth Observation from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. He also holds an M.Sc.
