Profiles in "Remote Sensing" Expertise Area

  • Dr. Poste is chief scientist, Complex Adaptive Systems Initiative, Regents’ Professor and Del E. Webb Chair in Health Innovation at ASU. He founded the Biodesign Institute and has published more than 400 research papers.
  • Barton is a complex systems scientist who combines anthropology, archaeology, earth science, and information technologies to study long-term dynamics and interactions of people and landscapes in the Anthropocene.
  • Christensen uses spectroscopy, radiometry, field observations, numerical modeling, and builds flight instruments to study the geology and history of planets and moons.
  • Cochran joined the the ASU faculty in 1989. His research interests are in mathematical aspects of sensing and signal processing, particularly for national security applications.
  • Middel’s research interests lie in the interdisciplinary field of urban climate with focus on climate-sensitive urban form, design, landscapes, and infrastructure in the face of extreme heat and climatic uncertainty.
  • Milan Shrestha is an Associate Teaching Professor at ASU. His current research interests focus on disaster risks and vulnerability in mountains, urban-rural linkages of land system change, and food and agricultural systems.
  • Aldrich served ASU as a faculty member at ASU from 1969 to 2000. He pioneered the field of GIS at ASU, acquiring the university’s first geographic information systems software and developing coursework in this area.
  • Watkins’ research focuses on the relationship between social vulnerability, individual experiences with extreme heat, and heat interventions. He also supports Arizona's Building Resilience Against Climate Effects efforts.
  • Serla is a PhD Candidate working with Dr. Phil Christensen. His current research is focused on mid-latitude ice rheology on Mars, and thermal infrared spectroscopy in far-IR.
