Brief Bio

Anthony Campbell is a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow in the Biospheric Sciences Laboratory. He is currently conducting a global change analysis of salt marsh environments and quantifying how this change impacts carbon stocks. Additionally, he is interested in applying remote sensing to understand how critical socio-ecological systems are changing.

Anthony attended the University of Rhode Island, where he studied with Yeqiao Wang and received his Doctorate in Biological and Environmental Science. His dissertation was title “Remote Sensing Monitoring of Salt Marsh Condition and Change in the Mid-Atlantic National Seashores.” During his graduate education, he worked in the Environmental Data Center and Laboratory of Terrestrial Remote Sensing, studying the impact of Hurricane Sandy on coastal national parks. In addition, he has extensive teaching experience both leading GIS laboratory and teaching standalone GIS classes. During his Ph.D., he received several awards, including NESTVAL student paper award, NASA Rhode Island Space Grant, and NASA-MSU Professional Enhancement Awards. 

Following his Ph.D. work, he became a postdoctoral associate at Yale University (2018-2019). During that NASA-funded position, he conducted research to understand the role of nighttime lights in socio-ecological processes. While the work is ongoing, it fostered his desire to understand natural processes in a changing world.
