Current graduate student in geography at UCSB, using remote sensing (LiDAR and multispectral imagery) to monitor riparian tree health in response to drought and climate change in arid and semiarid parts of CA and AZ. MS Mechanical Engineering (robotics); BS Mechanical Engineering and Biology (Ecology/Evolution/Behavior) from UT Austin.

Historically I've mostly used iNat to post (and help myself learn) plants, but trying to broaden into inverts and also marine stuff, now that I live near the coast! Overall most familiar with Central Texas and Southern California.

Also an avid birder, but mostly post bird observations to eBird:

  • Fabaceae, especially woody shrubs and trees
