Michele Tobias is a biogeomorphologist with a background in geospatial methods for ecology. At DataLab, she helps researchers understand and design geospatial methods and workflows, from data collection to spatial analysis to data visualization and cartography. Michele earned her PhD from UC Davis in Geography where she studied California’s sandy beach ecosystem with a mix of traditional phytosociological methods and innovative remote sensing tools. She has a bachelor’s degree in Geography (focused on biogeography) and German (focusing on linguistics) from UCLA and a master’s degree in Ecology (resource ecology & management) from University of Michigan. She worked at the UC Davis Information Center for the Environment as a postdoctoral scholar. Michele’s research interests include applying spatial analysis methods to new avenues of research.
