Geographic Information Science and Remote Sensing

GEOG*2460 Analysis in Geography

I am seeking motivated graduate students with a background in Remote Sensing and GIS to work on topics relating to optical and SAR remote sensing and ecosystem change dynamics. I aim to recruit 1 or 2 MSc students to start in Fall 2020. Some topics of interest include:

  • Wetland inundation monitoring using optical and SAR satellite data
  • Disturbance-recovery dynamics in forested and wetland ecosystems
  • Multi-sensor flood disaster monitoring

Please contact me at for a more detailed discussion on these topics of interest, as well as potential funding opportunities. Interested candidates are encouraged to send me a resume/CV, a statement of interest and unofficial transcripts.
