Jasper van Vliet
Jasper van Vliet is an Assistant Professor in land-use science. In his research he combines case study approaches and meta-study approaches with spatial analysis and spatial modeling tools in order to improve our understanding of land use change processes. Jasper teaches a number of courses related to spatial analysis at the Bachelor and the Master level. Moreover, he contributes to the research design course for thesis students and supervises a number of Bachelor and Master thesis projects. Jasper has ample international experience due to his participation in a number of international research projects, his capacity building project in Southeast Asia, and several international workshops and conferences.
