Professor of Earth Observation, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am currently Professor of Earth Observation and Associate Director of the Rights Lab, leading the Lab's Measurement and Geographies Programme (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/beacons-of-excellence/rights-lab/programmes/index.aspx).
I received a BSc (Hons) degree in Geography from the University of Wales, Swansea in 1992, followed this immediately with my teacher training (PGCE (Wales)) and my PhD (University of Southampton) in 1996. I gained my PGCert in Teaching and Learning in HE in 2002. I have held Lectureships at Manchester, Kingston, and Bournemouth Universities, UK and between 2004 and 2006, I held the position of Senior Research Leader in Research and Innovation at Ordnance Survey, GB. In 2007 I joined the University of Nottingham as Associate Professor and have subsequently (in 2013) been promoted to Reader and then Professor (in 2019). For over half my career I have worked part-time.
My main research interest is in using cutting-edge geospatial data science on standard and novel data streams. The principal data stream is that captured by remote sensing systems, including terrestrial-based, unoccupied and occupied aerial systems, and satellites carrying both passive and active sensors. These data have been applied to the full range of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and since arriving in Nottingham has attracted over £10 million in research funding (£4 million as Principal Investigator) from governments, learned societies and research councils in the UK and Europe, as well as from international space agencies.
