Episode 2: Hurricanes, Lidar and Drones

On this episode I am joined by Dr. Comfort Manyame, Senior Research Manager at Mid-South Synergy.  He always impresses me with his ability to look at old problems in new ways.  We discuss his work:

  • Spatial Analysis of Lightning Strikes to improve electrical infrastructure.
  • Using a damage assessment app inside Hurricane Harvey.
  • Flying drones with lidar to build a new kind of vegetation management program.

Thanks to Comfort for his conversation and impressive professional vision!  You can find him here.
