Prof. L. Monika Moskal

Prof. Moskal specializes in Remote Sensing at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS), within the College of the Environment, at the University of Washington, Seattle. Prof. Moskal serves as the Associate Director of Research Programs in SEFS, Director of the Precision Forestry Cooperative (PFC), and Director of the Remote Sensing and Geospatial Analysis Laboratory (RSGAL). She is affiliated with the UW Interdisciplinary PhD Program and the UW Department of Geography.  Prof. Moskal earned a PhD in Remote Sensing and GIS from the University of Kansas,  Masters in Remote Sensing from the University of Calgary and  Bachelors of Environmental Sciences from the University of Waterloo.  Download 1-page CV.

Prof. Moskal’s lab: RSGAL‘s goal is to understand multiscale and multidimensional dynamics of landscapes through the application of hyper-resolution remote sensing. RSGAL develops methods necessary to analyze hyper-resolution remotely sensed data by exploiting spatial, temporal and spectral domains of the data. RSGAL is dedicated to increasing the retention and success of underrepresented minorities in geosciences.

Prof. Moskal is the Director of the PFC  which was founded in 1999, as part of the Washington State Advanced Technology Initiative (ATI), by the WA state legislature. The mission of PFC is to develop advanced technologies to improve the quality and reliability of information needed for planning, implementation, and monitoring for natural resource management, to ensure sustainable management. PFC’s external research funding is ~$10 million/biennium.
