Project Monitoring Manager, Global Restoration Initiative
Edward is a Project Monitoring Manager with the Global Restoration Initiative.
Prior to joining WRI, Edward worked as a remote sensing specialist at Spectral Evolution, supporting the development of hardware and software for a variety of climate-related applications. He has extensive experience in applying geospatial technologies to evaluate forest ecosystems. In the past, he has had the privilege of working on NASA-led missions by combining forestry and remote sensing data to better characterize tropical and mangrove forests in Costa Rica. He has also applied similar techniques to monitor the impact of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid infestations in the East Coast of the United states. He holds a Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from the University of Massachusetts Boston, with a specialization in Geographic information Systems.
More importantly, in his spare time, he enjoys learning to be a new Dad, wrestling with his big Saint Bernard "Osa", and solid RomCom movies.
