Speaker's bio:
David Gaveau combines satellites, drones and field investigations to study the impacts of humans on Earth’s land surface. He maps tropical deforestation, forest degradation and regeneration, agricultural developments, and landscape fires. He quantifies impacts on rainfall, atmospheric carbon, air quality, virus outbreaks, and wildlife. David investigates the effectiveness of forest conservation interventions in Southeast Asia, for example whether protected areas, corporate zero-deforestation pledges, and no-burning policies reduce deforestation and fires. He develops internet mapping solutions to disseminate the information to the general public.
