My expertise is in use of remote sensing and geographic information systems to provide accurate broad-scale data to make decisions about environmental conditions, with emphasis on wetland ecology. I apply geodetic science theories to improve the accuracy and representativeness of data through better sampling designs, equipment, methods, and through improved statistical data interpretation into my research. I have knowledge of all traditional functions involved in photogrammetry; photo interpretation; geodesy; mathematical and statistical analyses; and geography and geographic information system analyses.
