Corey Scher, MS

Geologist, remote sensing expert

I develop methods in satellite remote sensing to study terrestrial hydrologic processes and associated human impacts. Where earth science and geopolitics overlay, I seek to develop insights from remote sensing observations that support scientific research in terrestrial hydrology and diplomatic accountability in the monitoring and management of increasingly scarce freshwater resources.

I was born and raised in Berkeley, CA.
