Mao-Ning Tuanmu is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. He is interested in the spatio-temporal dynamics of species distribution and biodiversity patterns, their underlying processes and drivers, and their implications for biodiversity conservation. In particular, he is interested in how ecologically relevant information can be extracted from remotely sensed data and how the information can help us better understand biodiversity patterns and be used to guide biodiversity conservation. He received a PhD in Fisheries and Wildlife from Michigan State University in 2012. He holds M.Sc amd B.Sc in zoology from National Taiwan University, Taiwan. His dissertation research focused on the spatio-temporal dynamics of giant panda habitat and of pandas’ major food resources, understory bamboo.
