Elyse Allender

Dr Elyse Allender is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of St Andrews. She received her Bachelor of Surveying and Spatial Science with Honours from the University of Tasmania, Australia in 2011. Her thesis focused on the identification of hydrated mineralogy within gully formations at Hale crater on Mars using a combination of hyperspectral Compact Reconnaissance Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (CRISM) data and a HIgh-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) DEM. Elyse was a PhD student at the University of Cincinnati and worked at the Space Informatics Lab to develop an automated processing pipeline for fast mineral exploration of CRISM imagery. In the course of her work Elyse works with Linux in the bash environment,  writing and implementing procedures within GRASS GIS, R and ENVI+IDL.
