Corey Scher

PhD Student in Earth and Environmental Science

City University of New York

I am a PhD student developing insights into a changing Earth through the lens of satellite remote sensing. The technical depth of my work lies in the science of radar imaging and seeks to develop novel methodologies to measure changes occuring at the Earth’s surface. The breadth of my work spans from applications in terrestrial hydrology to tracking the physical and environmental aspects of geopolitical conflict.

I was born and raised in Berkeley, CA and am currently based in New York City.
