G-ECO Remote Sensing Lab

Employment and Internships of graduated students under the supervision of prof. Simic Milas:

Oak Ridge National Laboratory, ORNL, Department of Energy, Tennessee
Satelytics, Toledo, OH
Ceres Imaging, California
Woolpert, Dayton, OH
U.S. Geological Survey, Kentucky
Bayer – Monsanto, Missouri

Graduate students under the supervision of prof. Anita Simic Milas commonly find employment in the field of remote sensing within 2-3 month after they complete their MSc degree.  

Graduate and undergraduate students use field, airborne, satellite, and UAS/UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle, a.k.a. drone) data to address environmental, geographical, biological and geological issues. Different remote sensing software are used to convert reflectance measurements to properties of vegetation, water, soil and rocks. For their projects, students often use the eBee drone. 


Students gain knowledge and experience in both field data collection and computer lab research. Graduate and undergraduate students in G-ECO lab monitor status of forest, crops, rocks, water (e.g. Lake Erie) sediments and algal blooms, carbon budget, land use changes, and many other natural and human-induces phenomena. 



Students collaborate with NASA, Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Michigan State University, University of Toronto. They are members of Rapidlasso (LiDAR), BEPS, and LTER groups. Students use various airborne, satellite and UAS/UAV data such as Landsat, NASA Glenn HSI (hyperspectral) data, Sentinel, MODIS, and eBee UAV data.   

Under the program SPatial LITeracy - SPLIT Remote Sensing  prof. Simic Milas organizes international summer schools. This intensive and advanced 6-day learning program is the best insights into recent remote sensing techniques learned from top international professors and researchers through hands-on sessions and lectures.
