Marco Millones is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Geospatial Analysis at the College of William & Mary. He received his PhD from the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University and a Master’s degree from the University of Miami. He has 10 years of academic and professional experience with applications of Geospatial Analysis for land use/cover dynamics, sustainability indicators and development policy. He has been involved in a wide range of projects including: creating spatially explicit ways to prioritize public investment in Peru; assessing hurricane damage with satellite imagery in the Caribbean; and, evaluating child lead poisoning risk in urban areas in the USA by combing cadastral data with individual medical records. Most recently he has analyzed land use/cover trends and drivers in the Mexican Yucatan using remotely sensed fire data, regional trade flow records, and forest extraction permit archives. Millones has published his work in the International Journal of Remote Sensing, Transactions in GIS and Science in China among other academic journals and has taught courses in introductory and advanced Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
