The SHED Lab

The Simulating Human-Environment Dynamics Laboratory is located in the Department of Geography at the University of Oregon. The SHED Lab is a place of research and teaching focused on the use of computational methods for investigating human interactions with natural and built environments. Faculty, staff, graduate students, and undergraduate students participate in collaborative research projects aimed at understanding a variety of complex geographic phenomena in which feedbacks and multi-scale interactions between human and natural processes lead to emergent landscape patterns over time. The SHED Lab also hosts workshops on the use of geospatial technologies and computational models for understanding our world.

For inquiries regarding our research, workshops, and student research opportunities, please contact Dr. Chris Bone at
