Ecological and Hydrologic Modeling Team
Ph.D., Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara, and San Diego State University, 2010.
Current Role
Specialist in terrestrial biophysical remote sensing, with responsibility for environmental research, assessments, and monitoring related to natural and anthropogenic perturbations.
Applications of optical remote sensing and geospatial modeling approaches for analyzing and monitoring terrestrial ecosystem functions and processes; application of plant spectroscopy to hyperspectral image analysis for terrestrial ecosystem research; development of novel image processing algorithms to extract and characterize land surface features and properties; use of geospatial information technologies in development of a framework for data interpolation, extrapolation, and scaling from fine-resolution local scale to coarse regional scale.
Career Highlights
  • Principal investigator: Identifying patterns and association among meteorological and biological measurements and hyperspectral data for investigating near-surface atmosphere-biosphere interactions; long-term monitoring of utility-scale solar energy development and application of remote sensing technologies.
  • Co-principal investigator: Developing an integrated sensor network for science; modeling the effects of wind energy development on greater sage-grouse populations using individual-based modeling approach.
  • Committee chair: Workshop on Sensor Needs for Terrestrial Biogeochemistry Measurements.
