Personal profile


Mark Cutler’s research revolves around the application of Earth Observation data and methods to extract environmental information relating to terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems that can help address the UN Sustainable Development Goals.  This includes exploiting data from hyperspectral and hyperspatial sensors to monitor the long-term impacts of climatic and logging disturbance in SE Asian forests, and forest exploitation and landscape change resulting from displaced peoples in Eastern Africa.  Other projects include the GloboLakes project ( which combined state-of-the-art satellite observations with catchment properties, to map and understand spatial and temporal patterns in the changing status of over 1000 lakes across the globe, and UK Space Agency funded work looking at the potential of Earth Observation to map and aid responses to human trafficking. 


I have a varied teaching portfolio, which includes undergraduate teaching on modules relating to Biogeography, Remote Sensing and physical geography fieldwork, as well as contributions to MSc programmes on topics of forests, restoration and sustainability.
