About Tom Evans
Tom Evans is a new faculty member at SGD (January 2018). My current work focuses primarily on agricultural decision-making, food security and environmental governance but have had past projects related to deforestation/reforestation, urban ecosystems, community resilience. My work generally involves some aspect of household-level analysis coupled with environmental data and methodologically my projects usually involve use of spatial analysis, GIS, remote sensing and simulation modeling.
I have funding for graduate research assistantships and post-doctoral researcher positions for the 2017-2018 academic year - contact me if interested!
