Associate Professor of Geography and Environmental Management Dr. Derek Robinson became a Fellow of the International Environmental Modelling and Software Society (iEMSs) this week. Receiving the Society's Medal for research excellence and service to the Society, Dr. Robinson joins an elite group of recipients since the award commenced in 2001.
His research advances our understanding of land use change and modelling human system through the use of agent-based models. Currently, Dr. Robinson and his students are using unmanned aerial vehicles to quantify erosion and calibrate and validate erosion models at the scale of human decision makers. By ensuring that natural models work at the scale of human decision makers we can increase our understanding about how humans affect and interact with the environment.
