About Shawn Landry

My research contains a balance of academic and applied research, technical transfer services and community engagement. I often address issues related to water, wetlands, urban forest and land cover change. There are several themes that infuse my research: the spatial and temporal dynamics of human-environmental interactions, environmental equity, water resource management and policy, applied geospatial technology and online public education and decision support systems. Examples of the long-term websites that my colleagues and I developed include:
