Dr. Basil Iannone
Dr. Iannone is an assistant professor in forest resources and conservation and specializes in geospatial analysis of sustainable and resilient land development. His research and extension programs broadly focus on the ecology of human-dominated, residential landscapes. Within this context, his focus includes spatial ecology, biological invasions, ecological restoration, and in how to design future developments so that they exhibit similar levels of ecological functionality as more natural ecosystems. His research projects are interdisciplinary and employ a wide range of geospatial and statistical tools, and observational, experimental, and modeling approaches. He received a PhD from the Ecology and Evolution Program, Biological Sciences at the University of Illinois.
