Research interests

Eleanor Bruce's research interests are in environmental spatial analysis and modelling. More specifically this research has focused on examining processes of habitat loss in urban coastal environments, the use of GIS and remote sensing in vegetation change detection and landscape heritage management, marine zone planning and evaluating the impact of spatial data uncertainty in environmental decision-making. Current research projects include examining coastal wetland response to changes in inter-tidal sedimentation rates in Sydney Harbour and investigating links between spatio-temporal pattern and processes of landscape change to facilitate longer-term vegetation monitoring in Angkor, Cambodia. Eleanor is currently working on collaborative research projects with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority, Ku-ring-gai Council, Department of Environment and Climate Change, APSARA and UNESCO.
