PhD, Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara

I'm a geographer specializing in satellite and airborne remote sensing of the terrestrial environment. My work falls mostly into one of three categories: 1) Urban ecosystem analysis using fusion of hyperspectral imagery and lidar data, 2) Characterization of boreal forest fire effects in Alaska (also leveraging hyperpsectral and lidar data); 3) Land cover change analysis using Landsat time series algorithms.
