Eckart Lange

Professor Eckart Lange is Head of the Department of Landscape at the University of Sheffield. He holds a Dipl.-Ing. in Landscape Planning from the TU Berlin, a Master in Design Studies from Harvard University and a Dr. sc. techn. from ETH Zürich. Since 2008, he is a member of the scientific committee of the European Environment Agency in the area of spatial planning and management of natural resources. In 2011 he was elected as the first academic fellow of the Landscape Institute. His research focuses on how landscape and environmental planning can influence anthropogenic landscape change, while developing innovative methodologies of how advanced virtual landscape visualizations and modeling can be used to explore human reaction to these changes. Honors include e.g. Fellow of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science and the 2011 Excellence in Research & Creative Works Award of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture.
