Funded Projects

The Vegetation and Landscape Ecology (VALE) lab is headed by Janet Franklin. Researchers at VALE examine patterns and dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems at the landscape scale, as well as the impacts of human-caused landscape change on terrestrial plant communities. For more information on VALE, see here

The lab for Spatial Analysis in the Social Sciences (SASS) is headed by Serge Rey. Researchers at SASS examine patterns of urban spatial structure and their interactions with the dynamics of economic, demographic, education, public health, and other social systems. Their work applies urban data science, spatial econometrics, and geospatial statistics to pressing issues in social science and public policy.
