I am an environmental manager with a strong interest in remote sensing and GIS applied to terrestrial ecosystems. This passion arose when I first attended an ornithology conference and listened to the speaker explain how he used GIS and remote sensing images to identify potential habitats for an endengered bird. Later, while pursuing a masters in statistics, I had the opportunity to take my first GIS class and I loved it! An opportunity came for me to participate in a NASA sponsored project as a doctoral research assistant. For five years I studied shurb expansion in the Arctic using passive remote sensing. In 2014, I was hired as an assistant professor at UW-Whitewater, and I have been teaching here, ever since.

Research Interest:
Multispectral remote sensing applied to the study of shrub expansion in the Arctic
Hyperspectral remote sensing of crops
