My research focuses on using optical remotely sensed imagery to observe change in boreal forests over long time periods. These data that are generated can provide information on forest disturbances including indicators of severity, but also offer the ability to monitor recovery and regrowth of forests at an annual time step. This information is required for many tasks, but is becoming more and more pertinent with a changing climate.
My main role in the Forestry Department is to conduct classes in the MGEM program such as GEM 530 – Geospatial Data Analysis, GEM 580 – Geoinformatics Seminar, and GEM 599 – Project Proposal Development and Proof of Concept. I also support lecturing in GEM500 – Landscape Ecology & Management and GEM 511- Advanced GIS for Environmental Management
