About Me:

I'm the Director of Research and Analysis for Direct Relief, a global humanitarian medical NGO. I'm also on the core organizing group for UAViators, the humanitarian UAV network. I coordinate the humanitarian UAV working group for Nethope.org.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I'm primarily interested in UAV applications for humanitarian relief and development, from mapping to distribution and delivery of essential goods.
