Jenny Williams – Kew Gardens
Hang on to your hats!! We are off to Jolly ‘ole England for a whirlwind of an interview! In Episode 14, I get to talk with Jenny Williams from the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, located about 30 min from Central London. Jenny shares with us her experience and work with remote sensing and how imagery is helping Kew map out various plant species around the globe. As well as modeling the extent of coffee plants in the African nation of Ethiopia.
We discuss a few more ‘bits-n-bops’ things as well, getting to catch up on some of her travels as I have always known Jenny to be a true ‘Woman on the Go!’ I hope all of you enjoy learning more about Jenny, her geospatial adventure and the work she is doing. I know I really enjoyed my time catching up with her. Make sure to check out the Kew video where Jenny and her other researchers at Kew fill us in more about the Arabica coffee plant and its status in Ethiopia.
