Jasper van Vliet is an Assistant Professor in Land-Use Science. In his research he aims to better understand land use change processes and their consequences at scales ranging from local to global. The multi-scale approach underlying his research builds on a range of methodological approaches, including case studies, systematic reviews, spatial analysis, and land-use modelling.

His current work focusses on food systems and the role of human settlements in land use change. He leads the SDG food project on trade-offs and synergies related to SDG2 in Laos and Myanmar. In 2019 Jasper was awarded a VIDI personal grant for his project “Guiding human settlements towards sustainable development”. Jasper leads the Global Land Programme working group on rural-urban interactions.

Jasper teaches BSc and MSc courses on GIS and Spatial analysis, Land use change, and Research design and regularly supervises related thesis projects.
