I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geography
at McGill University. I earned my MSc (2004) and PhD (2006) degrees with a specialization in remote sensing from the Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department
at the University of Alberta
. Before coming to McGill I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Criminology
at Simon Fraser University
, and a Research Fellow for Tropi-Dry
and the Canadian International Council
My research focuses on the application of remote sensing (satellite and airborne imagery) to environmental and forensic questions. I am particularly interested in historical land use change as documented by early Earth Observation data as well as airborne hyperspectral imagery and high resolution UAV videography.
