Angela Kross is a fulltime-faculty in Geospatial Technologies, she has obtained an M.Sc in Geographic Information Science / Remote Sensing from Wageningen University and Research Centre in the Netherlands and a Ph.D in Physical Geography / Remote Sensing from McGill University. Prior to joining Concordia in August 2015, she was a post doctoral researcher at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. In her research she uses GIS and Remote Sensing technologies in combination with ground measurements and models to answer questions related to ecosystem processes, vegetation development and land use change in response to anthropogenic and natural events, such as agriculture practices, mining activities and climate change.
