Personal profile


Dr. Andrew Skidmore is Professor of Spatial Ecology at Macquarie University and the University of Twente. His interest in research relates to hyperspectral and LiDAR remote sensing for monitoring vegetation,  habitat monitoring under fragmentation and climate change, as well as developing innovative image processing techniques. Professor Andrew Skidmore worked for 10 years with the Forestry Corporation of New South Wales (NSW). In 1991 he moved to the School of Geography, University of New South Wales, and also worked as member and later Director of the Centre for Remote Sensing and GIS. As Head of the Department of Natural Resources for 19 years from 1997 Professor Skidmore developed his current main research focus on Essential Biodiversity Variables through Earth Observation for sustainable production of natural resources.
