Additional Information:


My background is in rangeland and landscape ecology with an emphasis in geospatial science and specifically remote sensing of natural and anthropogenic environments. I've applied my work in the Western U.S., Mexico, Egypt, Iceland, India, Namibia, Uzbekistan, and China, in semi-arid, forested, agricultural, and urbanized landscapes.

My teaching focuses on applications of remote sensing to natural ecosystems and my research addresses monitoring of landscapes to detect changes and trends in land condition.

I am the Director of the Remote Sensing and GIS Laboratory in the Department of Wildland Resources, College of Natural Resources.
