Hi. I am an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Spatial Science. My research concerns human interpretation of remote sensing images, and the use of computational GEOBIA methods modeled after human cognition. My training is in the use of remote sensing image analysis for geologic and vegetation analysis and cognitive GIScience.
I teach GEOBIA methods as GEO 826 GeoComputation for our graduate students here at MSU. I am also serve as the instructor for both of our cartography courses GEO 326 and GEO 426. In all three courses I emphasize the role of spatial knowledge and cognition to our understanding of geospatial data.
I am originally from the Upper Penninsula of Michigan. I enjoy camping, fishing, landscape photography, bollywood movies, music and classical literature.
