About

Peter Verburg is professor Environmental Spatial Analysis and head of the Department Spatial Analysis and Decision Support at the Institute for Environmental Studies, VU University Amsterdam. He specializes in spatial analysis and simulation of human-environment interactions, with emphasis on land use and land cover change, ecosystem services and scenario studies. Peter Verburg is developer of the land use change model CLUE which is currently used by more than 100 institutions world-wide for simulation of land use change scenarios and ex-ante assessment of policies. He has been a member of the IHDP/IGBP LUCC focus office on regional and global integrated models of land use change. He was involved in many EU research projects, and he has coordinated large research projects for other organizations. He has published over 75 peer-reviewed articles and several book chapters. He has organized workshops and post-graduate courses on the topic of land use modelling and he is a regular invited speaker at international symposia.
