Remote Sensing Team

The remote sensing team’s strategic priorities are restoration assessment and restoration monitoring

Greg McDermid, Remote Sensing Team Lead

Greg is a geospatial scientist whose research activities revolve around the application of remote sensing and other geospatial technologies to environmental monitoring and ecology. He is involved in a wide variety of interdisciplinary research collaborations in the fields of wildlife ecology, biodiversity assessment, ecological monitoring, plant-phenology assessment, and vegetation mapping. He’s interested in a broad range of remote sensing and other GIScience pursuits, including UAVs, cloud computing, environmental modelling, and data fusion/integration.

Irina Terentieva, Postdoctoral Fellow


Colette Shellian, MSc Student

Colette is a Master’s student with interests in forest ecology and using remote sensing techniques to understand forest regeneration in fragmented landscapes. Her current research investigates factors that influence seedling growth on seismic lines. In her spare time, Colette loves spending time in the mountains- whether it be hiking, paddle boarding, kayaking or skiing.

Tanya Yeomans, MSc Student

Tanya comes from a multidisciplinary background and is looking forward to working with spectral time series data in Google Earth Engine to track vegetation recovery on boreal disturbances.
