My research bridges geomatics (remote sensing, GIS, spatial analysis) and ecology. While my research program focuses on improving the extraction of valid and relevant information from the marine environment through the use of geospatial technologies, some of my past projects involved the study of terrestrial and aquatic environments in contexts such as water quality assessments for integrated watershed management and land use/land cover impacts on water quality. In general, I seek to better integrate spatial concepts and methods in applications like habitat mapping and environmental characterization.
