Assistant Professor

Engaging Communities with Participatory Modeling, Human Dimensions of Landscape Change

Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management


Jelena uses geospatial analytics to study human dimensions of landscape change and ecosystem services. She develops participatory research methods using landscape simulation and visualization to explore the complex roles played by sense of place, human decisions, and landscape characteristics in natural resource challenges, such as exurban growth. Her interests include developing geospatial analytics for fire and natural resource management in parks and protected areas, including modeling fire and ecosystem processes, forecasting development along park boundaries, and building decision support systems.
