Louis Jochems

Louis is interested in utilizing data from remotely sensed imagery, field observations, and human activity to predict the spread of invasive plant species throughout wetlands in the Great Lakes region. Ultimately, he hopes to incorporate this information into a decision support tool for land managers to better protect vulnerable wetlands.
