As a faculty member at the Copernicus Institute for Sustainable Development, I am looking for new and innovative ways to use geospatial technologies to help ensure there is a healthy planet for future generations. I recently published a cartography textbook with the United Nations (UN) about how to map the UN Sustainable Development Goal indicator data. As a member of the Environmental Science group, in my research I primarily use Earth Observation data from satellites to help monitor the environment at different scales. From small island states to the global scale. I mentor students who are doing a wide range of creative projects experimenting with using open data for measuring solar potential in data poor cities, to using citizen science to monitor butterfly species in parks. See the writing section of this website to read more about my published research.
