Eric Lambin's research is in the area of land-use change. He develops integrated approaches to study human-environment interactions in land systems by linking remote sensing and socioeconomic data. This includes research to better detect subtle land changes based on time series of Earth observation satellites at multiple scales. His goal is to improve modeling of causes and impacts of deforestation, dryland degradation, agricultural intensification and conflicts between wildlife and agriculture around natural reserves. New research directions include land-use transitions – i.e., the shift from deforestation or land degradation to reforestation or land sparing for nature -- and the impact of land change on vector-borne diseases.
