Biography


Daniel LeVine received a BS in Environmental Science from UT Austin in 2012. As an undergraduate, Daniel gained hands on vegetation ecology experience working as a research assistant for the Hawkes Biogeochemistry Lab in UT's Department of Integrated Biology, interning with the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center's Ecosytem Design Group, and participating in UT Geography's faculty-led field program in Botswana. Before begining his Masters, Daniel gained remote sensing and geospatial sciences experience working on multiple projects as a volunteer for UT Geography's Digital Landscapes Laboratory. Since graduating he has conducted environmental research in Botswana and Central Texas, studying vegetation and soil dynamics.

Daniel has taught a wide spectrum of courses as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, including Landscape Ecology, Remote Sensing, Environmental Science, Research Methods for Environmental Science and a first-year signature course on the topic of globalization, Our Global Backyard. Additionally he TAed for the faculty-led Botswana field program in the summers of 2014 and 2015.

His thesis research is investigating phenological trends in woody vegetation along an aridity gradient in Central Texas through a combined ecological and remote sensing analysis. He is the current president of UT's American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) Chapter.
