Trevor joined the team in July, 2011, having spent the previous decade mapping the distribution, composition, structure and dynamics of forested environments in Alberta, British Columbia, Massachusetts and New York State. During two years in Madagascar, Trevor employed satellite imagery to assess national-level mangrove dynamics, target hot-spots for mangrove loss, and conduct detailed mapping of key hot-spots. These efforts resulted in first of their kind maps for several areas of interest, including the Ambaro/Ambanja bays region. Through over 10 field expeditions, Trevor also recruited and trained the science branch of the Blue Forests team in the field protocol required to determine ecological variability and measure above- and below-ground carbon stocks. The recipients of this training included numerous Malagasy and foreign scientists and graduate students, and members of many coastal communities.
Since September, 2013, Trevor has been working from the Integrated Remote Sensing Studio in the Faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, where he continues to manage blue carbon science and oversees all things geospatial for Blue Ventures. Trevor also continues to build on existing research partnerships and explore new and exciting collaborations
