David L. Cotten
David spent roughly two years at UGA’s satellite campus in Griffin as a Research assistant/Post doc, where his work focused on surface-atmosphere exchange from pine forests, peanuts, turfgrass, and wetlands. He is interested in using his physics and biometeorology background in conjunction with remote sensing to improve knowledge of regional scale processes, specifically focusing on carbon storage and using unmanned aerial vehicles to further expand imaging capabilities. He is also leading UGA’s SmallSat Research Lab, which is an undergraduate-based mission developing a nano satellite focusing on photogrammetric Structure From Motion and coastal monitoring.
