Bryce Frank


Cloud Computing & LiDAR


I am a PhD student at Oregon State University under the advisement of Temesgen Hailemariam in the Forest Measurements and Biometrics Lab. My research interests revolve around LiDAR and remote sensing applications for large scale analysis of forest resources including the specifics:

Before graduate school I spent two years as a timber cruiser with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and have an interest in traditional forest measurement methods, tools, and software. I am specifically interested in how field measurements affect the conclusions we can make using remote sensing assisted forest inventories.
