Electronics Engineers (IEEE), received the lifetime achievement award from the Mathematical Sociology section of the American Sociological Association, and the Simmel award for advances in social networks and network science from the International Network for Social Network Analysis. Dr. Carley has participated in several NRC studies, including the Committee on Modeling and Simulation for Defense Transformation and the Panel on Modeling Human Behavior and Command Decision Making: Representations for Military Simulations, and she was a keynote speaker at the 2010 Workshop on New Research Directions for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
John R. Jensen is Carolina Distinguished Professor and co-director of the GIS and Remote Sensing Center in the Department of Geography at the University of South Carolina. His research interests are in remote sensing of the environment, digital image processing, and biogeography. He received his B.A. in geography (photogrammetry focus) from California State University, Fullerton; his M.S. in geography (photogrammetry and cartography focus) from Brigham Young University; and his Ph.D. in geography (remote sensing and cartography focus) from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is also a certified photogrammetrist. Dr. Jensen has written four textbooks, including Remote Sensing of the Environment: An Earth Resource Perspective, Introductory Digital Image Processing: A Remote Sensing Perspective (now in its third edition), and an electronic book on geospatial processing with interactive frames of instruction and animation. He also serves on education committees and is a current member of the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis Remote Sensing Core Curriculum Committee and a former chair of the Commission on Education in Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems for the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. Dr. Jensen is a former president and current fellow of
