Dr Karen Anderson
Associate Professor in Remote Sensing


My research is focused on developing novel remote sensing methods for assessing landscapes, particularly soils, vegetation and peatlands. I am particularly interested in understanding ecological structures, and my work seeks to develop new approaches for the monitoring, measuring and modeling of natural environments. To this end, I use laser scanning, hyperspectral imaging, field spectroscopy and unmanned aerial vehicles in my research. I am also interested in using spatial data to develop 3D virtual models both to engage local communities and to help visualise and understand drivers of future environmental change.

I am a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
