Alex Zvoleff, Ph.D.

Senior Director, Data Science, Global Synthesis, Moore Center for Science

Dr. Alex Zvoleff is Senior Director of Data Science for Conservation International's Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science. Alex integrates data from satellite sensors, environmental monitoring, and social surveys to understand how changes in the landscape affect biodiversity in tropical forests.

Alex has expertise in using statistics and modeling to integrate data from a broad range of sources to develop tools to inform conservation decisions. He has worked on topics including how changing land cover affects human health, how climate variability and change affect rural livelihoods, and how population growth and climate change might affect forests.

Alex is interested in furthering the development of new tools that ensure that the best possible information is available to decision-makers. Alex received his Ph.D. in geography in a joint program at San Diego State University and the University of California, Santa Barbara. He also has a Masters in Climate and Society from Columbia University, where he studied how to use computer modeling in rural development planning.​
