About Me

Read my article on how GIS can help aquatic ecologists working in Mongolian rivers in the Spring 2017 edition of ArcNews Magazine.nic

I was previously an Assistant Researcher and GIS Specialist at the Kansas Biological Survey. My work involved the development of GIS tools for hydrogeomorphic analysis and categorization of river systems, with a focus on temperate steppe rivers in North America and Mongolia.

My research and professional interests include: political ecology, qualitative methods, GIS and remote sensing, ecological modeling, tropical land use/land cover monitoring, Amazonia (Peru), participatory mapping, and unmanned aerial systems (UAS) applications. See my Research page for more information.
