Role

My research is focused on using satellite remote sensing and environmental modeling to address questions related to patterns of biodiversity, ecosystem services and ecosystem function.  I mainly design algorithms to process large volumes of satellite data to reveal environmental phenomena such as land cover change, phenology and resilience. In order to accomplish this I have research skills including databases, high performance scientific computing, R and a variety of GIS and RS software.  In addition, I have been closely involved in the development of web-based tools to expose environmental data to users, and in the dissemination of these tools to a wide range of stakeholders.
