My educational background includes an MSc in Geography (University of Victoria), and a PhD in natural resource management & conservation planning (Department of Geography, University of Turku, Finland). In 2002-03 I was a Marie Curie Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Geography, Universität Salzburg

 

Research

I have a background in remote sensing and conservation GIS. Currently research disconnections between `western`and indigenous geographies as expressed in geographical knowledge transfer, especially the different aspirations each group has for the next generation of GIS tools. I also active explore collaborative mapping, community engagement using maps, landscape scale forest ecology, ecoforestry, public participation GIS.
