About

Current activities

Leading a team that's mapping intertidal zones and mangrove communities using Landsat imagery (25 metre spatial resolution) at a national scale.

Background

I've worked in Earth observation science since 1998.  I was employed at CSIRO Land and Water from 1998 to 2001, following which I completed a PhD with the CRC for Catchment Hydrology on the remote sensing of riparian zone/floodplain structure and function.  I was a lecturer at the Australian Defence Force Academy in 2005, and moved to the TropWater facility at James Cook University, Townsville in 2006.  I joined Geoscience Australia in 2008 and have worked at GA on a wide range of activities including land cover mapping, emergency response activities and surface water characterisation.
