Institute of Digital Forestry
Novel and emerging technologies and new data science approaches are converging to yield exciting capabilities to measure, monitor, and manage forests. The promise and potential of these new methods requires broadly transdisciplinary research and education to advance the understanding and management of forest systems. The Integrated Digital Forestry Initiative (iDiF; https://ag.purdue.edu/digital-forestry/) is building on Purdue University’s strengths in forestry, engineering, computer science, aviation technology, and other disciplines to realize the potential of recent advances in remote sensing, big data, and artificial intelligence to ensure the productivity and sustainability of our global forests in the 21st century and beyond. The research assistant/associate professors in this cluster hire will complement and extend the research capabilities of iDiF with skills from a broad range of backgrounds.
