  • Space Balloon Project
    A package that was launched from the ESF campus and lifted a pair of cameras some 17 miles above Earth was recovered in Poughkeepsie, providing a group of students with stunning photographs and a lesson in remote sensing.

Research Interests

  • environmental monitoring using remote sensing methods (e.g. impervious surface/vegetation structure using satellite image analysis, uncertainty analysis, context-based image classifiers),
  • environmental modeling using geographic methods (e.g. climate pattern analysis, national forest consolidation dynamics, biodiversity responses to climate/land cover changes, urban growth prediction), and
  • environmental decision systems (e.g. optimal placement of wildlife mitigation structures).

Research stats: 38 journal manuscripts, h-index = 15 (Google Scholar), $2.3M as lead PI from NASA, NSF, USDA Forest Service, USAID and Syracuse Center of Excellence.

I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding of a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

Personal Statement
I grew up in the Syracuse Area and completed my undergraduate studies at SUNY ESF. After being exposed to the unprecedented environmental challenges facing this generation, I soon realized the need for a global transition to renewable sources of energy. Im mainly interested in quantifying urban energy flows and applying ecological principals to human networks.

Graduate Research Topic
Effects of land use/land change on residential energy demand
