Noah is a third year undergraduate planning on double majoring in Statistics and Data Science as well as Ecology and Evolution at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is studying agricultural abandonment in the southeastern United States with emLab using Google Earth Engine and remote sensing. His work on this project will focus on land use changes around wilderness areas and how specific species might be affected. His previous work experience includes assisting a PhD student with his research on using remote sensing to create a machine learning software to identify bat movements, especially around wind farms and agricultural lands. Noah loves to be outdoors, whether that means road biking, mountain biking, rock climbing, backpacking, or just enjoying Santa Barbara's amazing beaches.
