Stacy A. C. Nelson

Associate Professor

Education:
B.S. Jackson State University (1990)
M.A. College of William and Mary - Virginia Institute of Marine Science (1995)
Ph.D. Michigan State University (2002)

Research Interests:
Use remote sensing and GIS technologies to address both regional and local-scale questions of land use/cover change and also the impact of this change on inland lakes, wetland, and coastal ecosystems, as well as their associated effects on water quality and fisheries ecology.
