Feb 13, 2014

Research By Tom Snitch, a visiting professor at UMIACS and chairman of the Board of Visitors of the College of Computing, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences, was featured on the front page of the UK Telegraph newspaper.

The piece, in the form of an op-ed authored by Snitch, highlights the recent work of Snitch and others in UMIACS to stop the illegal poaching of rhinos and elephants in Africa.

Their research involves small, unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) that use satellite imagery, exquisite mathematics and complex algorithms to better understand how animals, rangers and poachers move through space and time.
