For my PhD research, I'm interested in how we can improve mapping of snow distribution in alpine catchments by combining data acquisition from micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) with multi view stereo 3D reconstruction. Currently, I am investigating the spatial uncertainties of snow elevation models from repeat micro UAV surveys in complex terrain (e.g. over rock glaciers) using statistical models. This research is funded through a scholarship awarded by the National Sciences and Engineering Council of Canada (NSERC), Oct 2015 - Sept 2018.
