Role: CCI collaborative projects, Project team member

Background

My background is in satellite remote sensing and GIS for vegetation mapping, monitoring and modelling. I currently use GIS and associated spatial analysis tools in applications related to mapping global threats to biodiversity and trying to link these to wider societal drivers. Identifying gaps in knowledge is a key part of his work as we seek to know more about when, where and how biodiversity is threatened by manmade processes.
