FAA-Certified in their Country?



I specialize in the application of unmanned aerial systems and sensor technology to collect and analyze environmental data. A lot of the research I participate in focuses on the integration of drone technology with other location-based data to answer complex questions about environments. I have nearly three years of experience in the collection and photogrammetric processing of drone imagery, and more recently with LiDAR. I am passionate about all things drone, and love taking unique topdown photos with my Mavic 2 Pro. As a woman in this field, I believe the most important thing I can do to help increase the number of female drone pilots is to mentor other women and motivate them to reach their goals.
