Barnali Dixon is a professor and executive director of Initiative on Coastal Resilience and Adaptation (iCAR) and the director of Geospatial Analytics lab (G-SAL) at the University of South Florida. Her research interests include the development and application of spatially integrated decision support tools (SDST) using GIS, GPS and remote sensing tools for modeling and managing soil, land use and land-water interfaces (terrestrial sources and aquatics sinks, including coastal waters) using approximation tools. She is particularly interested in transdisciplinary modeling of land-water interface under climate change in the context of planning, adaptation, and resilience. I have secured over $1.5 million in funding, published 50+ refereed publications, nineteen monographs, and technical reports.
