The Frederick S. Pardee Center of the study of the Longer-Range Future has announced their 2014 Pardee Graduate Summer Fellows.

Included in this years fellows are two Earth & Environment Graduate Students, Xiaoman Huang and Xiaojing Tang.

Huang is a doctoral candidate with a focus on remote sensing. From the Pardee website: Huang “will use remote sensing technology to map land-use change from agriculture to urbanization in China from 2000 to 2012 with the goal of developing improved data sets for exploring the impacts of urban growth.”

Tang is a doctoral candidate working with Earth & Environment Professor Suchi Gopal. Tang’s research is focused on remote sensing and GIS. From the Pardee website: Tang “will develop a long-term forest disturbance model to investigate how changes in forested areas impact biodiversity in Tonlé Sap Lake in the Lower Mekong Basin, a region of Cambodia where more than 2 million people are highly dependent upon ecosystem services such as fisheries and agricultural production.”

The Pardee Summer Graduate Fellows will spend the summer  working at the Pardee House where they will develop research that will be considered for publication in the Pardee Center’s publication series.
