Research Interests

As a part of the Biodiversity and Spatial Information Center (BaSIC), my primary research has been in modeling expansion of the urban and ex-urban extent, mostly in the Southeastern U.S. Past research includes aerial photography collection and interpretation, supporting landcover mapping for the Southeast Gap Analysis Project.

Throughout my career as a research assistant at NCSU, my experience with the ESRI suite of software, and geographic information systems in general, has become the foundation of my work; more recently, focusing on automation of complex and lengthy processes covering large extents. I have found that I relish the challenge involved in finding a way forward where no clear path presents itself.
