Biography

Dmitry Shchepashchenko is a senior researcher jointly associated with the Agriculture, Forestry, and Ecosystem Services (AFE) Research Group in the IIASA Biodiversity and Natural Resources (BNR) Program and the Novel Data Ecosystems for Sustainability (NODES) Research Group in the Advancing Systems Analysis (ASA) Program.

Shchepashchenko has more than 30 years’ research experience in the field of forest ecology, forest management, and remote sensing. He actively participates in international research networks, including the International Boreal Forest Research Association (IBFRA) and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO). His current projects include work on the Forest Observation System’s permanent forest plots for validation and calibration of remote sensing; the validation of forest biomass maps for the European Space Agency’s Climate Change Initiative Biomass Project; citizen science and forest modeling under climate change in the Alpine region as part of the ALPTREES Project; and forest carbon accounting and reporting for Russia under the IMGGAR Project. Recently completed projects include NatureMap, where he was involved with aspects of forest management and forest biomass mapping globally; and the RESTORE+ Project, which involved addressing landscape restoration on degraded land in Indonesia and Brazil.

Shchepashchenko graduated with a degree in forestry from the Moscow State Forest University (MSFU). He received a PhD in soil science from the Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute in Moscow and was awarded a Habilitation degree in ecology from MSFU. Shchepashchenko is a visiting researcher at the Siberian Federal University, Russia.
