Diane began work as the GIS/Remote Sensing Analyst for the Flathead Lake Biological Station in 1999. She works closely with Dr. Mark Lorang, Dr. Jack Stanford, Dr. F. Richard Hauer and Dr. John Kimball on projects throughout the Pacific Northwest. Her research and interests focus on the application of GIS/Remote sensing technology to aid in the understanding of the spatial and temporal dynamics of riverine environments.
