Dr. Schneider’s research focuses on human-environment relations affecting patterns and processes of land-use land-cover change in the tropics. Her specific research interests are monitoring and modeling land transformation, biophysical remote sensing and understanding the effect of environmental disturbances (hurricanes, fires, droughts) on tropical forest resilience.
