Growing up in the flatlands of central Florida inspired me to escape to the Rocky Mountains as fast as possible. So after attaining my BS in Natural Resource Conservation from the University of Florida, I moved to Fort Collins where I have been working as a GIS Technician for the past five years. Now I aim to apply remote sensing technologies towards understanding ecology while working as a master's student under Dr. Lefsky. My research will likely involve using data from the hyperspectral and lidar sensors aboard NEON's Airborne Observation Platform to understand the impacts and recovery of the High Park Fire.
