Research Council Representative
Dr. Sophia Burke is a postdoctoral researcher in the Satellite, Airborne, Drone Remote Sensing Lab within the Earth Systems Research Center and is advised by Dr. Mike Palace. Her research interests focus on the use of remote sensing products, like drone imagery, to understand the impact of climate change on the landscape. Her current work looks at identifying changes in vegetation presence due to permafrost thaw in subarctic peatlands and the impact this has on greenhouse gas emissions. Outside of work, she likes to craft, backcountry ski and read fiction books.
