Remote sensing of changes in lake-calving glacier area and dynamics


Research activity per year

Personal profile


3rd year PhD Researcher working on remote sensing the changes in lake-calving glacier area and dynamics through using Google Earth Engine. I am developing an Object-Based Image Analysis (OBIA) code that allows the automatic detection in glacial lake area and subsequent changes from satellite imagery Landsat 4-9 in different glaciated regions in the world. 

My current work is focused on developing an OBIA code in Google Earth Engine to study the changes in the areal extent of the glacial lakes in the Southern Alps of New Zealand between 2000-2023.
I am experienced in remote sensing, particularly in utilising the power of Google Earth Engine to retrieve image collections to all cloud-free or low-cloud cover Landsat 4-9 satellite imagery as well as other sensors such as Sentinel-2 and MODIS.
