Research Interests

My research interests focus on the use of innovative technologies to answer important scientific questions relating to our natural and built world. Tools range from satellite and UAV based remote sensing to water and terrestrial sensor networks. Specific focus areas include water quality and quantity, urban and production forestry and agriculture production.
