Ashley Scott Kelly is an educator and expert in landscape planning and geographic information systems at the University of Hong Kong. His research and practice focus on scenario-building and filling knowledge gaps for environmental conservation and sustainable development in data-poor regions. He applies landscape and architecture design methods to land change and landscape ecology, with wide expertise on the manipulation of geospatial data for the study, advocacy, design and delivery of projects in ecologically complex and contested landscapes. Recent works include design guidelines for tropical road infrastructure, corridor modelling for wildlife crossing design, and a Development and Conservation Awareness Map for southern Myanmar. Key professional works range widely in scale, from new town planning to the winning entry for New York City’s 46,000-acre Gateway National Park. Ashley coordinated the Masters thesis in landscape architecture for three years and teaches design courses on regional landscape planning, infrastructure planning and design and rural development in China, South and Southeast Asia, and Latin America.
