Successful applicants will join the Geoinformatics, Ecosystem Management & Soil Sustainability (GEMS) lab, led by Dr. Sidd Paul at Purdue University, IN, USA. Our research attempts to understand how anthropogenic modifications of the natural landscape impact various soil-related ecosystem services using a range of earth observation and geospatial data science techniques. Specifically, the GEMS lab is interested in studying the effects of land management and climate change on soil organic carbon, soil hydrology, water resources, and crop yield at farm-to-regional scales. The particular research project aims to enhance understanding of carbon dynamics in agricultural landscapes, supporting climate change mitigation and adaptation.
