Karen has a PhD in Geographical Sciences from the University of Queensland (2005) where she used satellites and aerial cameras to map live coral cover on the Great Barrier Reef. She then turned her geospatial expertise to broader uses within government, private industry, academia and the Australian Army. Her research now incorporates drones into environmental monitoring workflows. Karen is also the co-founder and Education Director of She Maps – an initiative designed to bring diversity to what we think of as science (it’s more than lab coats and test tubes!) and who engages with science as a potential career path.
