Research Interests

My primary interests are in remote sensing and natural hazards. In my research I use Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to monitor surface deformation caused by natural disaster events such as floods, landslides, and wildfires, as well as anthropogenic geohazards. I am particularly interested in hillslope stability and understanding how different factors affect landslide susceptibility.
