Jessica is a researcher and project manager for the CRCSI. She has expertise in a variety of fields including terrestrial and tidal vertical datums, the quality assurance of airborne topographic and bathymetric LiDAR, and GIS for applications in the areas of climate change, biodiversity, public land, fire, water supply, drainage systems, and environmental resource and asset management.
At the CRCSI she developed a national approach for vertical datum transformations of elevation data in the Australian littoral zone, and subsequently managed the production of a now publicly available transformation tool (AusCoastVDT). Jessica is currently involved in a number of projects including developing an airborne LiDAR compliance and quality assurance tool (QA4LiDAR), implementing GIS and GPS environments for the Western Port Biosphere Reserve, developing the national coastal flooding visualisation tool using the Google cloud and airborne LiDAR, and research and algorithm development for the automated extraction of river channel features from airborne LiDAR.
