Damian Evans is a research fellow with the École française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO) who specializes in using geospatial and computational methods to explore and understand landscapes across monsoon Asia, from the deep past to the present. An anthropological archaeologist by training, his work lies at the intersection of the geosciences, data science, tropical ecology, and landscape history. Evans was the founding director of the University of Sydney’s overseas research center at Angkor, in Cambodia, before joining the EFEO in 2015. Since then, he has been leading an interdisciplinary team that pursues questions of social complexity, urbanism, cultural exchange, and technological innovation in Southeast Asia from a geospatial laboratory at the EFEO. Evans has active field projects and collaborations in numerous countries in South and Southeast Asia, funded primarily by the European Research Council.
