Graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Spatial Information Systems out of the School of Forestry and Natural Resources from the University of Arkansas in Monticello.

Most recent publication: Monitoring Annual Urban Growth in Northwest Arkansas with a 20-year Landsat Record. http://www.mdpi.com/2072-4292/9/1/71/htm

Current 2nd year Masters student in the School of Geographic Sciences and Urban Planning at Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona.

Currently working on projects involving Remote Sensing Data analysis of the earth from satellite's using only free and readily available data networks. Including Ecosystem Services (Carbon Storage/Sequestration and Water Yield/Purification) and their changes due to urbanization and increased agricultural demands in various landcover dominated water sheds. Another project studying the effects of urbanization on groundwater aquifer's and their ability to be sustainably used without causing permanent damage to the aquifer.

 

Research Interests

Remote Sensing using mostly free and easily aquired satellite data on a global scale. Watershed and sub watershed level land cover change analysis  caused by urbanization over time in Arizona. Satellite Gravimetry methods to help extract static vs dynamic concentrations of mass and their movements over time to help illustrate and understand the ways human landcover changes can affect underground aquifers.
