Associate Professor

Department of Geography
University of Calgary






I am a GIScientist whose research activities revolve around the application of remote sensing and other geospatial technologies to environmental monitoring and ecology. I am involved in a variety of interdisciplinary research collaborations in the fields of wildlife ecology, biodiversity assessment, environmental monitoring, plant-phenology assessment, and vegetation mapping. I am particularly interested in the impacts of human activities (energy system development, natural resource extraction) on environmental systems.

Research Interests

Remote sensing and GIScience applied to wildlife habitat mapping, biodiversity assessment, and environmental monitoring.
