Assistant Remote Sensing Scientist
Ecological and Hydrologic Modeling Team
DegreePh.D., Geography, University of California, Santa Barbara; San Diego State University, 2010.
Current RoleSpecialist in terrestrial biophysical remote sensing, with responsibility for environmental research, assessments, and monitoring related to natural and anthropogenic perturbations.
CapabilitiesApplications of optical remote sensing and geospatial modeling approaches for terrestrial ecosystem analysis and monitoring; application of plant spectroscopy to hyperspectral image analysis for terrestrial ecosystem research; 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.
