BIDS Senior Fellow Maggi Kelly is Professor and Cooperative Extension Specialist in the Environmental Science, Policy and Management department at UC Berkeley. Her group uses a range of geospatial data and analytics – from spatial modeling, remote sensing, drones, liDAR, historical archives, surveys, participatory mapping, and the field - to gain insights about how and why California landscapes are changing, and what that change means for those who live on, use, and manage our lands. Her work enables interdisciplinary collaboration, data-rich analytics research, and active outreach across a number of scientific domains (forests, agriculture, wetlands, climate change) with significant societal impact. She is faculty director of the Geospatial Innovation Facility and Director of the ANR Statewide Program in Informatics and Geographic Information Systems (IGIS).
