Gregory Larsen

My research examines how wildlife behavior and ecology responds to changing near-polar environments. My current work uses drones and high-resolution satellite imagery to observe changes and patterns in how pinnipeds use terrestrial habitats in coastal areas, but my experience and interests include many species, ecosystems and research methods.  

Current Research Interests

My work integrates advancing techniques across the fields of spatial statistics, remote sensing, and geographic information systems (GIS). My primary research methods involve the acquisition of high-resolution imagery from drone and satellite platforms, extraction of meaningful data through GIS techniques, and analysis of ecological observations using spatial modeling. These advance the three-fold goals of (1) addressing gaps in management data, (2) advancing methods in wildlife remote sensing, and (3) understanding the behavioral ecology of pinnipeds at a fine-scale.
