Rob’s work specializes in geomatics and the application of spatial technologies in soils, agriculture, and the environment. His current research is focused on using small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) to acquire aerial imagery for use in agricultural management.
We use multi-scale approaches to examine the processes controlling contaminants in the environment, particularly when they pose threats to drinking water quality, are impacted by agricultural practices, and have direct policy implications.
