ABOUT

I am a Geospatial Developer with an MSc in Geography and a background in Geology. My areas of expertise are automation of geospatial workflows and geodatabase management. My latest projects involve remote sensing applied to forest mensuration including machine learning procedures. Throughout my professional and academic life, I have developed dozens of geospatial tools ranging from simple conversion or descriptive scripts to robust geomorphological analysis software.
