Dr Danielle Marceau has completed a Ph.D. in GIScience at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. She has been professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Montreal in Quebec from 1993 to 2005. She is currently professor in the Department of Geomatics Engineering at the University of Calgary, Alberta. Her research program is focused on Complex System Modelling. It involves the design and implementation of individual-based models, namely cellular automata (CA) and agent-based models (ABM) to study the interaction and dynamics of coupled natural/human systems. These models are used as spatial tools to guide decision making in environmental resource management more specifically in the area of water and energy, land use and spatial planning, and wildlife-human interactions. She is the Editor of a book on Advanced Geosimulation Models published by Bentham Science in 2011. She has been awarded a Schulich Research Chair in Geospatial Information Systems and Environmental Modelling in 2010.
