Jing Sun, a post-doctoral scholar working with Jack Liu, has published a paper in this week’s Applied Geography. He explores new ways of understanding deforestation in the Amazon.


Emilio Moran is a world-renowned social anthropologist who has studied and published in tropical agriculture, social science, ecology, economics, and, most recently, earth observations from satellites.

Moran’s true discipline is asking the right questions and merging human and environmental sciences to get a holistic understanding of some of the world’s most crucial problems—climate change, land use—and a project he pioneered some 30 years ago: determining the potential of the humid tropics for intensive agriculture.
