Our team is actually a collaborative network of researchers, technicians, technologists, graphic designers, and Aniishnaabe advisors established across Canada for completing all steps in the platform process to industry leading standards. Together, they act as tool providers on our UAS Environmental Communications Platform, which was designed to contain all expertise necessary for moving participants across steps between original communication need --> to the creation of communications materials using drone imagery.
Our core team oversees the management of each step in the process towards creating unique communications materials, as well as continual reshaping of steps involved in the process.
Our network collaboration team involves the skills, tools, and technical capacity that we use for the actual creation of communications, including processing, algorithm development, concept design, graphic design, reporting, and remote sensing translation
Victoria has over 30 years experience in strategic project design in the environmental field. She specializes in making communications appealing for wider audiences to understand, including the creation of communications and interactive learning tools for tacit knowledge holders – specifically in food security and Aniishnaabe relations.
Amanda has over 15 years experience working in community based contexts for environmental protection. Her expertise lies in knowledge translation and mobilization for uptake and application within the community context.
Martin has completed a project advisory roles between UWaterloo, UToronto, Lakehead U, and now U of Guelph. His experience stems from his 10 years of work in Lands and Resources management at Matachewan First Nation, as well as an additional 10 years through his own consulting company, 8th fire solutions, where he acted as a liaison and facilitator between Elder and community engagement between FN communities and industry (forestry and mining).
Helen has extensive experience working in knowledge mobilization through her role as Associate Professor in Capacity development and extension at UG. She lends clarity to this project about leading edge engagement techniques for community contexts, technological stewardship (or safe methods for adopting and applying technology) in the community context, and innovation management for unique ideas that emerge from research.
Brandons extensive CV testifies to his expertise in machine learning, UAS communications creation (drone based communications), and remote sensing imagery collection and interpretation. He has worked extensively with OMAFRA, MNRF, and Canadian forestry associations, lending his expertise to national level strategies in creating accurate technical information from remote sensing and GIS based analyses.
We are happy to discuss collaborations with other industry experts, researchers, and land stewards who can help to build the tools of our platform network.
