I am a spatial analyst and modeller interested in the human-environment frontier. My current research investigates people’s reliance on nature and its services, and explores the consequences and tradeoffs of exploits from changes in land use and climate, and its impacts to biodiversity and ecosystem services in the Asia Pacific. I work with a multitude of spatial imagery - in particular aerial and drone imagery - existing GIS databases and various spatial techniques to assess problems and determine solutions to the most urgent of environmental issues.
