Short Description

I am a scientist, entrepreneur and citizen of Planet Earth who believes that space technology has the capacity to improve the lives of everyone on the planet. I am a Professor of Applied Earth Observation at the School of GeoSciences in the University of Edinburgh where I help to build the capacity of future geographers, geoscientists and GIS specialists. I am the founder of REDD Horizon, a capacity development programme in Malawi. In 2008 I was a co-founder of Ecometrica (a land use and carbon accounting company) and in 2011 I co-founded Carbomap (a forest survey company spun out of the university at the start of 2013).

You can find a print-replica of my book “Introduction to Microwave Remote Sensing “ on Amazon.
