I am an ecologist, working at the intersection of remote sensing and biodiversity science. I am broadly interested in how remote sensing and other spatial predictors can help monitor species composition and diversity, across different taxonomic groups, as well as ecosystem functions.

My current work focus on the application of hyperspectral information to estimate plant communities and their diversity in Canadian ecosystems in the framework of the Canadian Airborne Biodiversity Observatory (CABO).
