Head of Remote Sensing
2Excel Geo

Chloe joined 2Excel Geo is 2017 after completing her PhD and now takes up the position as Head of Remote Sensing. During her PhD at the University of Leicester, Chloe specialised in the assessment of tree health using remote sensing techniques. In particular her research focused on the application of LiDAR and multispectral imagery for the assessment of  Phytophthora ramorum in plantation Larch and Acute Oak Decline in mature broadleaved woodland. Chloe has continued operational focused research in tree health assessment at 2Excel geo, taking advantage of the companies’ airborne hyperspectral capabilities.
