Jonathan Resop

Lecturer

Jonathan earned his Ph.D. at Virginia Tech in Biological Systems Engineering. During his time at Virginia Tech, he worked on multiple projects related to spatial modeling and remote sensing, in particular problems that involve agricultural and environmental systems. His dissertation involved applying ground-based lidar to various ecological applications. After completing his Ph.D. he worked as a post-doc for the USDA-ARS in Beltsville in the Crop Systems and Global Change Lab, doing research related to simulating the potential production capacity of crops within regional food systems using a geospatial crop model. Jonathan received his undergraduate degrees at the University of Maryland, College Park in Biological Resources Engineering and Computer Science.
