About Stephen Young

Professor Young is a former chair of the Department of Geography at Salem State University where he uses remote sensing (satellite imaging) to analyze climate change and deforestation. He received his Ph.D. in geography from Clark University, a master's degree in environmental science from Yale University and a B.A. in environmental studies from the University of Vermont. His geographic areas of expertise include northeastern North America and China. In addition to his academic research, he bridges the arts and sciences through art gallery exhibitions which try to expose the public to science and geography. In the summer of 2015 his exhibition Macro or Micro? (with Salem State University Biology professor Paul Kelly) was on display at the Museum of Science in Boston, MA and at the Sazmanab Institute of Contemporary Art in Tehran, Iran.
