Education

  • Dipl. Eng. National Technical University of Athens, 1998
  • M.S., University of Maine, 2000
  • Ph.D., University of Maine, 2004

Links

  • 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.
