When spatial ecologist Jody Vogeler arrived at Colorado State University in 2018 as a research scientist in the Natural Resource Ecology Lab, her temporary management of a remote sensing lab quickly evolved into building her own independent research group. Less than three years later, the Vogeler Research Group and collaborators have been awarded four separate NASA grants totaling over $3 million in project funds, among a variety of other funded research projects.
