Prior to SFEI, Gloria received her B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Virginia and her M.S. in Forestry from Michigan State University. For her master's, she used remote sensing and GIS to generate landscape scale phenoregions in semi-arid savanna type regions along an East African megatransect using Landsat imagery. She is interested in continuing to use remotely sensed data and GIS systems to analyze, understand and visualize landscape scale ecosystems.
