My research is cross-disciplinary with the goal of scaling field observations and relationships to a landscape-scale using remote sensing and GIS (geographic information system) tools to inform the management of northeastern forests.¬†Often this involves working across scales (temporal and spatial), data sources (field, satellite, spatial) and integrating across disciplines. This linking of geospatial and natural science methodologies provides the landscape perspective necessary to mitigate the impacts of environmental stressors, with the information necessary to guide activities at local to regional scales. Ongoing projects range from the development of novel techniques to map forest structure, phenology, health and growth to the creation of an interactive, multi-criterion decision support tool to inform sustainable management of the region’s forests.
