Senior Research Fellow, IFPRI

How I work with Harvest

Dr. You links multiple models and big data to map the agricultural production system with new advances in satellite data acquisition and processing for monitoring agricultural lands globally. 


Dr. You’s research focuses on assessing the impacts of technology changes in agricultural production and modeling agricultural land use systems, in particular on the evolution and drivers of change in agricultural systems, as well as on estimating the impact of climate change and climate variability on food security. Dr. You developed SPAM (Spatial Production Allocation Model) to spatially disaggregating crop production statistics (, which has been widely used by many groups, including GEOGLAM.
