High-resolution population data is essential to effective disaster prevention and response—understanding how many people may be in danger from a weather event or natural disaster, who might be impacted by a resource scarcity or other anthropogenic activities, and how to efficiently deploy limited resources in response to a crisis.
The Human Geography group reveals the dynamic human landscape—at the planet, country, neighborhood, and building levels—to identify vulnerable populations or equity issues of climate impacts, geopolitical conflicts, or changes in governmental policies.
Members of Human Geography span a wide range of disciplines that bring a diverse perspective in support of population research. Our researchers hold bachelor’s, master’s, and PhDs and work as cultural and spatial analysts in addition to developing software needed for population distribution and occupancy datasets.
We always need talented researchers in the fields of linguistics, urban economics, anthropology, geography, earth science, spatial demography, remote sensing, and spatial data science.
