Graduate Adjunct Faculty
Dr. Emanuel Storey
Emanuel’s research and teaching activities have focused on wildland fire using the tools of geographic information science (GIS) and remote sensing (RS). His interests in climatic change and landscape ecology have led him to specialize in the study of how plant communities respond to fire in the context of climatic extremes and land management policy.
He studied Environmental Science at University of New Mexico (UNM), focusing initially on groundwater, geomorphology, and soil science. Courses in GIS and RS led to ongoing work as a cartographer with the Land Grant Studies Program at UNM. He completed graduate studies in RS at San Diego State University (SDSU), where both his master’s and doctoral research focused on the recovery of shrubland ecosystems after wildfire and in relation to drought. His portfolio of research in RS and fire ecology is published in several well-respected academic journals. He has also served as a reviewer for the journals Fire, Ecology, and International Journal of Wildland Fire.
Since graduation, he has done post-doctoral work at Florida Institute of Technology and San Diego State University. A love of teaching has led him into geographic education at Unity College. His main career goal is to help others to identify and mitigate environmental degradation through the development of GIS and RS analytical techniques. Emanuel loves to be in nature with friends and with his friendly dog.
