Dr. Temuulen “Teki” Sankey

Temuulen “Teki” Sankey is a remote sensing faculty in the School of Earth Sciences and Environmental Sustainability at Northern Arizona University. In this project, Teki and her PhD student, Richard Massey, are mapping the croplands across the North American continent. Teki’s research focuses on the dynamics of coupled human-environment systems. Specifically, she studies spatial patterns of changes in land use and consequent vegetation changes. She is especially interested in how socio-political regimes determine land management and how management impacts the rates and patterns of vegetation changes at a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. Much of her research also focuses on applications of 3-dimensional lidar data and lidar fusion with satellite data to examine ecosystem carbon dynamics. Before coming to Northern Arizona University, Teki was an Assistant Research Professor at Idaho State University following her MS and PhD degrees at Montana State University.
