My broad focus lies in the spatial science / GIS field - using spatially explicit datasets to evaluate problems with a consideration for potential patterns over space and time.
Specifically, my research is in partnership with Bush Heritage Australia (BHA). The project aims to take advantage of the ever-expanding pool of remotely-sensed earth observation data to develop a simple, reliable and inexpensive method for BHA to implement remote sensing based methods to monitor vegetation change on their rangeland reserves through a conservation lens. BHA's South Australian reserves, Bon Bon and Boolcoomata, serve as the study locations for my research, with outcomes being applicable on a wider scale.
