Research interests: Remote sensing of vegetation, imaging spectroscopy, land-use/land-cover change and multisensor fusion
My research with the SBC LTER focuses mainly on mapping vegetation species and plant functional types, urban composition, pre-fire fuel conditions (fuel types, canopy moisture and fuel loads) and post-fire impacts in the various watersheds that feed in to the coastal zone. I work primarily with passive sensors such as the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS) and active sensors such as LIDAR.
