Bethany Bradley

Research Associate (2006-2009)

As a land cover scientist, I am interested in how terrestrial ecosystems respond to land use and anthropogenic climate change. I use tools including remote sensing and geospatial analysis to identify drivers of land cover change and model risk based on land use and future climate scenarios

I am currently working with profesor David Wilcove on Princeton's invasive species modeling project which is off to a great start thanks to the efforts of Dave Marvin.
