Area(s) of Expertise

Meentemeyer applies tools from geospatial analytics to understand and communicate the vital roles that place, spatial interaction, and perspectives of scale play in models of environmental change and decision-making. His applied and participatory research projects engage stakeholders for collaborative solutions to natural resource challenges. Examples include the application of dynamic epidemiological models to know when, where, and how to collectively manage the spread of emerging forest disease in heterogeneous landscapes, and simulating alternative futures of land-use change in rapidly urbanizing regions.
