Environmental Information Management

Michelle O'Malley

The O'Malley Lab works at the interface of engineering and biology to engineer microbes and consortia with novel functions. We are especially interested in deciphering how “unwieldy” microbes in the environment perform extraordinary tasks - many of these microbes have no available genomic sequence and are exceptionally difficult to manipulate.

Ryoko Oono

Ryoko Oono is an evolutionary ecologist focusing on plant-microbe interactions. Dr. Oono earned her BA degree at Carleton College and her PhD in plant biology at the University of Minnesota where she studied the evolutionary stability of the legume-rhizobia symbiosis. As a postdoctoral fellow of NIH’s Molecular Mycology and Pathogenesis Training Program at Duke University and NC State University, she studied foliar fungal endophytes and their relationship with pine hosts in southeastern U.S.

Matthew Hall

The Associate Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer holds the senior campus leadership position responsible for developing an institutional focus on information technologies that advance the mission and strategic goals of UC Santa Barbara. The Chief Information Officer provides oversight for all IT activities that contribute to planning, creating, and implementing a campus-wide IT vision, and for integrating them into UCSB's strategic plan.

Katja Seltmann

As Director of the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration, I direct our three main research and programmatic areas — collections management, education, and restoration. The integration of these activities support the overall campus mission and provide unique opportunities for faculty, staff, students, and community members to explore, learn, and be inspired by our collections and campus natural areas. CCBER promotes the teaching of diverse undergraduate courses in EEMB, Environmental Studies, and Geology.

Satellite-based Wetland Inventory and Monitoring

SWIM is a research group based at Earth Research Institute (ERI), UC Santa Barbara,  led by Laura Hess. Our work focuses on: 

- remote sensing and image processing methods for multi-temporal mapping of wetland extent, vegetation, and inundation, with an emphasis on object-based fusion of SAR and optical data 

- geography, inventory, and monitoring of global wetlands 

- wetland hydrology, biogeochemistry, biodiversity, conservation biology, and sustainable management 

Snow Hydrology Research Group

The Snow Hydrology Research Group is part of the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara. It is also a member of the ESIP Federation (Earth Science Information Partners). The primary research focus of this group is NASA's REASoN (Research, Education and Applications Solutions Network) investigation called "Multi-Resolution Snow Products for the Hydrologic Sciences." The group also works on problems of snow metamorphism, snow-climate interactions, and snowmelt runoff.

Biogeography Lab

Since 1991 the Biogeography Lab has conducted research on the ecology, distribution and conservation of species and ecosystems using field studies, geographic information systems and remote sensing.
Through our research we help planners and resource managers protect, manage and restore productive and diverse ecosystems in California, the U.S. and internationally.

CLIVAC

Welcome to the Climate Variations and Change research group. CLIVAC is headed by professor Leila Carvalho from the Department of Geography at UCSB. Leila got her BSc, MSc and PhD degrees in Meteorology at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The behavior of our climate is governed by complex processes and interactions within the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, land, biosphere and ice. CLIVAC is dedicated to further understand the Earth's present and future climates on different temporal and spatial scales.
