Dr. Jeffrey W. Hollister is a landscape ecologist with expertise in the spatial component of ecology and environmental sciences. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Baker University, a Master’s Degree in Resource Ecology from Duke University, and a Ph. D. in Environmental Science from the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Hollister’s experience is in the application of geospatial technologies (such as geographic information systems, spatial statistics, and remote sensing) to environmental research; broad scale environmental monitoring, modeling and assessment; and ecoinformatics and reproducible research applications in ecology and environmental science. Recently, Dr. Hollister’s research focus has been on how nutrients in Northeastern lakes and ponds drive risk due to cyanobacterial blooms and how data science and open science may benefit environmental science.
