About

I work as a scientist at Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research, a Crown Research Instititute (CRI, or a New Zealand government-owned research organisation) in Lincoln, Canterbury. Most of my work background has been in remote sensing and image processing, both in commercial and research areas. I've done a lot of work in radar remote sensing of forests, shrubland and pasture, as well as the generation of terrain models using optical and radar imagery. Over the last ten years I have been slowly moving to being more of a statistical modeller, working on a variety of problems in soil science, soil carbon inventory, and vegetation modelling. Currently I have a focus of trying to quantify uncertainty in products that other scientists generate. It's not something they are often trained, or often able, to do.
