Katelyn is a PhD student in the department of Earth & Environment. She studies the use of optical and radar remote sensing to characterize commodity-driven forest loss in West Africa, with a focus on key regional, agricultural commodities (cocoa, rubber and oil palm). Her work is funded by NASA-SERVIR; through this program, she participates in and leads capacity building workshops for using geospatial data and tools. Prior to this, she worked as a research fellow for a NASA-MEaSUREs project developing a global land cover change product.
