Academic background:

  • PhD Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta (2006)
  • MSc Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Alberta (2004)

Research interests:

My research focuses on the application of remote sensing (satellite and airborne imagery) to environmental and forensic questions. I am particularly interested in historical land use change as documented by early Earth Observation data as well as airborne hyperspectral imagery and high resolution UAV videography.
