Dr. Jonathan Resop has been a lecturer in the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland since 2013, teaching full time in the MS GIS program. He teaches courses in spatial modeling, programming, and lidar remote sensing. Jonathan earned his Ph.D. at Virginia Tech in Biological Systems Engineering. During his time at Virginia Tech, he worked on multiple projects related to spatial modeling and remote sensing, in particular, problems involving agricultural and ecological systems. His dissertation applied terrestrial lidar to ecological applications such as quantifying streambank retreat and stream complexity. After completing his Ph.D. he worked as a post-doc for the USDA-ARS in Beltsville in the Crop Systems and Global Change Lab, doing research in simulating the potential production capacity of crops within regional food systems using a geospatial crop model. Jonathan received his undergraduate degrees at the University of Maryland, College Park in Biological Resources Engineering and Computer Science.
