I am first and foremost an ecologist working to promote the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. I enjoy finding solutions to problems on this site that I otherwise would not have exposure to in my day-to-day work.

Specialties: Remote sensing, GIS, spatial statistics, big data, wildlife conservation, and landscape ecology. My work focuses mainly on multispectral and Lidar remote sensing for assessing vegetation structure and composition.
