Nick Drake
Department of Geography,
King’s College London, UK


He is a reader in Geography at King’s College London. He has a BSc in Environmental Science from Plymouth Polytechnic and an M.App.Sc (Master of Applied Science) in Geochemical Exploration from the University of New South Wales, Australia. Nick then worked as a research fellow conducting remote sensing research at the Department of Geography Reading University, firstly working on a the development of improved algorithms for image classification and then on the characterisation of desert surfaces for geomorphological mapping using remote sensing. During this time he completed a part-time PhD on mapping and monitoring of surface cover types and processes in southern Tunisia using remote sensing.

Research Interest

He has research interests in remote sensing,GIS,spatial modeling, geomorphology, geoarchaeology and environmental change. He specialises in applying expertise in these areas to semi-arid and arid environments. His research interests in remote sensing involve both theoretical and practical aspects while research in GIS includes implementing spatial models of land degradation and soil erosion.
