Chris Bone is an Assistant Professor in Geography whose teaching and research focus on the use of spatial data science for exploring climate and human-driven natural disturbances and their impacts on diverse human populations.


Over the past decade, he has been involved in interdisciplinary efforts across the social, natural, and computational sciences that examine how climate change and forest policies have influenced large scale forest insect outbreaks, and how governance structures respond and adapt to such environmental events. He employs a range of computational and analytical methods, including agent-based modelling, network modelling, web mapping, location-based technologies, geographic information systems, and remote sensing.
