Dr. Wei Song was on sabbatical in spring 2019. His research activities during the sabbatical leave were focused on three related issues: (1) analyzing urban infrastructure and accessibility, (2) assessing urban economic performance and resilience using new sources of data (e.g. nighttime light remote sensing data), and (3) exploring spatial organization of urban functionalities based on network big data.

Drs. Gaughan and Stevens, along with UofL graduate students, work with an interdisciplinary team to study how communities and their households, land use, and climate interact to create or mitigate vulnerability in the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Area of Southern Africa. The primary outcomes of this work makes important contributions to advancing the land system science field by conducting a comparison of land use/land cover change in the broader context of socio-ecological vulnerability for Africa’s largest transboundary conservation area.
