Alex de Sherbinin is a Senior Staff Associate for Research at the Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), an environmental data and analysis center within The Earth Institute at Columbia University specializing in the human aspects of global environmental change. He serves as deputy manager of the NASA-funded Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC), and also serves as co-Coordinator of the Population-Environment Research Network (PERN), a global network of more than 2,000 social and natural scientists researching population-environment relationships and a scientific panel of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP). He is also chair of the CODATA Global Roads Data Development Task Group, and a co-author of the Environmental Performance Index (EPI).

 

Mr. de Sherbinin is a geographer whose research interests focus on the human aspects of environmental change at local, national and global scales. He is lead author of articles appearing in Annual Reviews of Environment and Resources, Climatic Change, Environmental Research Letters, Global Environmental Change, Science, and Scientific American. He has written on a range of topics, including population dynamics and the environment; urban climate vulnerability and sustainability; climate change and migration; climate vulnerability mapping; environmental indicators; consumption-environment linkages; and remote sensing applications for environmental treaties.

 

Prior to joining CIESIN, Mr. de Sherbinin served as a USAID-funded Population-Environment Fellow with the Social Policy Program of International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN, Gland, Switzerland), and a Population Geographer at the Population Reference Bureau (PRB, Washington, DC). From 1984-1986 he served as an agricultural extension agent with the U.S. Peace Corps in Mauritania, West Africa. He has degrees in geography from Syracuse (MA), Dartmouth (BA), and he is working towards his PhD in the People, Land and Urban Systems program at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC), University of Twente, Netherlands.

 

He has profiles on ResearchGate and LinkedIn, and blog postings through the Earth Institute’s State of the Planet blog.
