Karyn Tabor

Director, Ecosystem Modeling and Early Warning Systems, Moore Center for Science

Karyn Tabor directs the development of decision-making tools that deliver time-sensitive information. She has extensive expertise in building tools and models that use satellite images and climate projections to support conservation decisions.

Karyn Tabor is the Director of ecosystem modeling and early warning systems for the Moore Center for Science and Oceans. She directs the development of decision-making tools delivering time-sensitive information for improved enforcement of illegal activities and fire/natural resource management. She has extensive expertise building tools and models that use satellite observations and climate projections to support conservation decisions. Since joining Conservation International in 2001, Karyn has worked on a variety of research projects including forest cover and change mapping, fire risk modeling, and climate downscaling. She leads a technology taskforce to adapt new technologies for improved knowledge sharing, data dissemination, and data management within Conservation International and its field offices. She also helps lead Conservation International’s institutional engagement with NASA, in particular its Applied Sciences program.

Karyn holds a B.A. and M.A. in Environmental Science/Remote Sensing & GIS from Boston University. She has authored and co-authored a number of peer-reviewed publications on applications of remote sensing for conservation, habitat monitoring, fire risk/drought forecasting, and climate change impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity. She is a member of the Conservation Remote Sensing Network, Society of Conservation GIS, and American Geophysical Union.​
