Personal profile

Personal profile

My research advances our understanding of how agroecosystems impact the environment and Earth system. It is also used to inform global climate change and food security policy. I answer my research questions by developing empirical or semi-empirical models that integrate ground-based, Earth observation, and other geospatial data in a Geographic Information System (GIS). The models estimate: 1) the extent of agricultural cover; 2) evapotranspiration; or 3) biomass/yield. Earth observation in my case includes multispectral broadband and hyperspectral remote sensing
