Welcome to the Lab News Page!

I'll post stuff on occasion about the lab members here.

Lab Meetings are scheduled here. Lab guidelines.


My talk on spatial data science: a new map for the 21st century 

From a talk I did last year at CEGA on the 21st century mapping toolkit. Just found it on You Tube.


Good news! New grant funded by Berkeley Food Institute

Great news! Jennifer Sowerwine and I have been funded for a one-year seed (get it) project from the Berkeley Food Institute entitled: “Mapping Agro-­‐Biodiversity Hotspots and Cultural Foods in the Urban Food Desert: Fostering Community Food Security, Biocultural Diversity, and Health.”

Stay tuned for updates!


Kellylabbers at GIS Day

We had a great time at 2014 GIS Day! The event took place in Mulford Hall Wednesday Nov 19th from 5-8:30pm. We had about 200 attendees who participated in workshops, listened to talks, saw posters, and networked with other like-minded GIS-enthusiasts.

Here are some of the ladies of the Kelly Lab, from left: Anu, Sarah, Alice, Jenny, Maggi, Stefania, and KellySee the agenda here: http://gif.berkeley.edu/gisday.html.



Kelly labbers enjoy cake

Not the band, but real cake. Here in support of Stefania and her soon to be baby, we all enjoy some delicious cream sponge cake. From left: Shufei, Kelly, Stefania, Maggi, Peng Feng, Jenny, Alice (and Mr. C), and Jason.


First Graduate Certificate in GIST awarded to Miriam!

It is official! ESPM's (and the campus') first GIST certificate awardee will be Miriam Tsalyuk.

She is broadly interested in applying interdisciplinary landscape-level approach for biodiversity conservation. More specifically, she uses geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing for monitoring and conservation of rangelands in California and Southern Africa. For my PhD dissertation she is using such information to understand the environmental parameters that guide African Elephants' movement decisions across Etosha National Park, Namibia. Such understanding can inform resource management in the reserve and address human-wildlife conflict around the park.

Congrats to Miriam!
