Peter's research is focused on how to get data from the natural environment out of the field and into a form that can be used to make decisions. I make sensors and sensing systems that can be deployed statically, or dynamically on rovers or UAVs, which can be used to check anything from the methane off-gassing of a manure pool, water quality of agricultural runoffs to whether invasive species of fish are swimming up the Mississippi. Of particular interest to me are open biological problems, especially in agriculture, silviculture, and natural resource management, where sensing systems will allow for new data to answer old questions, such as in stream gauging, water and air quality assessment, and in regions drastically affected by climate change.
