Assistant Professor

Forecasting Landscape and Environmental Change, Agricultural and Aquatic Biological Resources

Biological and Agricultural Engineering


Natalie uses geospatial analytics to inform agriculture, aquaculture, water and coastal resources management. She develops data-intensive, management-focused and interdisciplinary approaches to the study of complex biological system dynamics, including the connectivity between land management practices and downstream water quality. Other interests include identifying risks to food security in coastal basins, linking data mining and mechanistic modeling approaches and investigating spatial and temporal dynamics of socio-environmental systems across settings and scales.
