The SilviaTerra team is thrilled to announce our newest member, Dr. Brian Clough. Brian comes to us after completing several years of postdoctoral research at the University of Minnesota. He brings a great set of skills to complement our current biometrics team, including experience with biomass and carbon modelling, and a solid background in Bayesian modelling techniques.


Brian is originally from the northeastern US, where he earned his PhD in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University. SilviaTerra’s remote work system will allow him to continue to call Minnesota home for the time being. He’s already hard at work improving our automated height modelling systems, along with learning about the rest of our systems. Welcome, Brian!
