Dissertation topic: QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF DEFORESTATION PATTERN DYNAMICS: DEVELOPING FOREST RESILIENCE METRICS IN AN AMAZON FRONTIER
Areas of /Reasearch Interests: My research interests lie within the field of resilience research and specifically the application of remote sensing and spatial analysis using GIS and remote sensing to evaluate changes and dynamics across landscapes. This includes the development of multi-scale environmental indicators and indices of ecosystem structure, function and dynamics and a multi-scale analysis of critical environmental processes at scales ranging from communities to landscapes and regions.
