Jason Kelley

Jason Kelley (MSc, 2021) is a PhD student interested in utilizing remote sensing and geospatial technologies to improve community driven environmental monitoring. His research is focused on the integration of UAV thermal, optical, and laser scanning data to develop a framework for evaluating and monitoring salmon habitat. He is also interested in how geospatial technologies can be utilized to support capacity building in First Nations communities for environmental monitoring programs. Jason is part of a larger team at UVic supporting three First Nation organizations on a BCSRIF funded project to develop a larger community driven salmon habitat monitoring protocol.

Expertise & Experience: R, GIS, Remote Sensing, Spatial Statistics, UAVs, Forest Inventory, Forest Carbon Modelling
