Short biogaphy

My primary research interest is the remote sensing of alpine vegetation types, change detection of alpine vegetation, and the mapping of other land cover types (eg., tree species). My approaches often use multiple data sources which are primarily spectral data from satellites such as Sentinel-2 or Landsat, but also 3D data from LiDAR and photogrammetry. I often work with large area operational projects and cooperate with government agencies and consulting companies in aspects of method development. My future interests are to apply multi-scale remote sensing and spatial modelling to better determine changes (climate and other agents) in alpine/sub-alpine and arctic/sub-arctic ecosystems.
