Overview

Current research: My research is concerned with answering critical questions about landscape function using spatial and structural indicators as proxies. I use high precision, validated RS data and novel methods of analysis to improve functional understanding of ecological and mountain systems. My remote sensing research has been complemented collaborative in situ data collection campaigns which have involved: hydrological monitoring, geomorphological and ecological survey, and gas flux measurements. I work predominantly in non-forest systems where vegetation and/or land surface pattern and volumetric structure provides a useful proxy for function.

Expertise: My PhD was focused on developing proximal sensing and spectroradiometric approaches for calibrating and validating coarser-grained remote sensing (RS) data through which I gained a deep critical understanding of the physical aspects of RS. My research now addresses questions about the relationships between spatial pattern, volumetric structure and ecosystem function in vegetated systems using RS observations, in situ data and spatial modelling. I work extensively with RS data of all types, from satellite observations to airborne and terrestrial laser scanning, and spectroscopy. With my DroneLab research group, I have pioneered the use of lightweight drones for spatial ecological research, with a particular focus on spatial modelling of vegetation structure in wetland, grass and shrub ecosystems. I have undertaken a range of practical research developing drone sensing methodologies, the latter which has led to me producing the first spatial estimates of shrub biomass in drylands using drone-based SfM photogrammetry methods.

Supervision: I currently manage a team comprising postdoctoral, doctoral and MbyRes researchers. I have supervised 7 PhD students to successful completion, all of whom have published peer-reviewed papers during their research projects.

I a geographer and I work also within the Geography Department in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences.

External Engagement and Impact

I undertake many external activities.

I was a member of the steering committee of the NERC Airborne Research and Survey Facility (ARSF) from 2009 to 2013. I have been on the NERC Peer Review College since 2012. I belong to a network of international collaborators including industrial partners (e.g. South West Water, UK; Exmoor National Park, UK; Agua Sustentable, Bolivia; FoAM Kernow, UK).

Some of my collaborations have been realised through funded EU COST Actions (E.g. ES0103 (‘Eurospec’) and ES1309 (‘Optimise’)), where I have also served on the Management Committee.

Science into policy: In December 2015 I was invited to present to the UK government at the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, in a debate on ‘drones and how to regulate them’ and I have presented my work on BBC television twice in the past five years. Most recently, I presented at the BBC's 'Click Live' technology show held at BBC Television Centre in London.

I am also:

There is a short video about my research and teaching available here.
