I am playing a central research role on the Geospatial Analysis for Environmental Change( team and had a key role in building the GAEC lab. As an innovative geospatial researcher I have extensive skills in quantitative spatial-temporal analysis and modelling of large datasets using remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), machine learning, spatial statistics and high performance computing (HPC). My far reaching international experience includes work in developing nations such as Indonesia and DR Congo. Since joining UNSW as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, I have been developing remote sensing algorithms quantifying surface water extent dynamics and vegetation response to flooding as part of an Australian Research Council Linage Grant and jointly supervise the lab’s three PhD students.
