Grad Student Opportunities
I joined GLEL in 2005, and am now a co-director, with most of my graduate students working in the facility. My research interests include a variety of spatial analysis techniques to assist with environmental decision making. More specifically, I have been working on uncertainty in land cover classification, measurement and modelling of primary productivity, and characterization of landscape pattern.
Current and recent projects include:
