She runs the GeoIDEA lab which focuses on geospatial innovation, development, and environmental applications.

Her current research interests span several different research domains including: the use and effectiveness of geographic data production using unoccupied aerial systems (UAS), human perceptions and spatiotemporal analyses of water quality and contamination, the effects of environmental characteristics on honey bee colony mortality across the United States, glacial archaeology, Participatory GIS, and citizen science.

Research Areas: GIScience, Remote Sensing, Applied GIS, Drones / Unoccupied Aerial Systems (UASs), LiDAR, Geographic Data Collection, Water Quality, Water Resources, Honey bees, Glacial Archaeology

Rogers’ research investigates emerging geospatial technologies to push the boundaries of efficiency in data collection and management through innovation and development, while analyzing datasets using cutting-edge analytical methodologies to solve real-world problems across disciplines.
