Lindi Quackenbush has been employed at the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) in Syracuse, NY since 1998, serving as a Research Assistant (1998–2001), Lecturer (2001–2004), Assistant Professor (2004–2011), and Associate Professor (2011–2018) before moving into her current position as Chair and Professor in 2018.  Her research interests cover a range of image processing and remote sensing application areas including forestry-related topics, such as developing tools to support forest classification and invasive species management, urban management subjects such as object-oriented algorithms for impervious surface classification and linear feature extraction, and water-focused topics such as riparian zone characterization and water quality monitoring. Lindi grew up in Australia and received B.Surv. and B.Sci. degrees from The University of Melbourne in 1994. She moved to the US in 1995 and earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in remote sensing and image processing from SUNY-ESF in 1998 and 2004, respectively. She also spent a year (1993) as an exchange student at the University of Maine in Orono, where she learned to appreciate cold weather.
