With a strong background in field wildlife research, Jody began processing and exploring the utility of remote sensing data sets, specifically LiDAR and Landsat time series products, for characterizing forest habitat in her masters and PhD work. Now in her research career, she works to develop ways to use remote sensing to better understand wildlife-habitat relationships, advance our understanding of forest disturbance ecology, and provide spatial products for management and conservation.
