I direct a team focused on remote sensing solutions for the regional-scale appraisal of shallow-water tropical ecosystems. My experience in the Earth and Marine Sciences spans more than fifteen years and all of Earth’s major coral reef provinces, ranging from ecological assessment, through sophisticated geostatistical modelling, to carbonate geology.
