Niall Origo

Niall Origo joined NPL after completing an MSc in Remote Sensing (UCL) in 2012. His work since has focused on understanding the uncertainty in satellite biophysical products related to vegetation (e.g. LAI, fAPAR, etc.) through analysis of their processing chains and generation of traceable validation datasets. This work utilises a number of Niall's research interests such as: radiative transfer in vegetation canopies; 3D scene modelling; laboratory characterisation of field sensors; and, propagation of uncertainty in scaling between datasets of different resolutions. Apart from the above, Niall is also into a second term as QA4EO Secretariat.

Niall is currently pursuing a PhD with UCL (Geography Dept) on the subject of measuring and modelling PAR fluxes in forest environments.
