Kailey Pascoe is a Ph.D. Student in the School of Geographical Science and Urban Planning at Arizona State University and a graduate student in the Asner Lab. She graduated from the University of Hawaii at Hilo in 2019 with a master’s degree in Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science. For the last eight years, she has dedicated much of her conducting research with a primary focus on coral health and changes in ecological processes in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Kailey’s current research includes using Structure-from-motion photogrammetry techniques to create high-resolution 3D models of coral reef habitats and underwater cultural heritage sites. These models are used to investigate the relationships between 3D habitat structure and coral reef functionality.
