Lyndon Estes
Associate Research Scholar, Princeton University


Lyndon’s primary interest lies in understanding how global change (climate change and food demand) shapes agricultural land uses, and how these in turn impact terrestrial ecosystems and species. He uses remote sensing and spatially-explicit simulation models as his primary tools of investigation. Further details on his research are here.


Lyndon Estes (Princeton University)
Knowing where farming occurs and where it will expand is crucial for understanding food security and our changing environment. However, the satellite-based maps we currently rely on are often inaccurate, particularly in Africa. Our project is harnessing open source software, big data, and crowdsourcing to create better crop field maps for Africa. Read more.
