I am a research scientist at the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve . I use iNaturalist extensively in the Coastal Ecology class I teach at UC San Diego.

My research is focused around understanding patterns of plant distributions. I work at scales ranging from small field plots to aerial and satellite imagery. I recently published a paper on the use of iNaturalist observations in vegetation mapping, and I'm looking forward to continuing to explore applications for ecosystem monitoring. More information on my research can be found here.
