Anthony completed his doctoral studies at the University of Rhode Island in Biological and Environmental Sciences in December 2018. His dissertation work focused on novel approaches to monitoring salt marsh environments with remote sensing. He focused on understanding the anthropogenic drivers of salt marsh change with a focus on the mid-Atlantic. He has published papers on the heavily urbanized estuary of Jamaica Bay, NY, which explored the role that restoration and disturbance have had on the salt marsh landscape. He has also studied the effect of the tidal stage on salt marsh mapping. He is interested in the human role in environmental change and furthering our understanding of the human-environment system. New to urban science, Anthony will apply the methods, skills, and knowledge learned during his Ph.D. work to further the use of night-time lights (NTL) data as an essential urban and ecological indicator.
