Dorn first joined ICF in 1999 as a GIS Associate in the Field Ecology Department working with Rich Beilfuss on land cover/land use change analysis of the Zambezi delta. From 1999-2006 Dorn led the GIS and Remote Sensing lab at ICF, contributing to projects in China at Poyang Lake Nature Reserve, Southeast Asia at sites in Cambodia and Vietnam, Mozambique, and the United States on long term management research on Sandhill Cranes.
Dorn returned to ICF in April 2013 after working with the NOAA Coastal Services Center (Charleston, SC) supporting conservation projects around the country and working as a GIS contractor. As ICF’s Spatial Analyst, Dorn works intensively on data management and analysis projects for the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP) research and monitoring teams, the Sandhill Crane long term management project, research efforts at Poyang Lake in China, projects in SE Asia, and supports international project staff as needed. Additionally, Dorn creates maps for a variety of ICF uses.
Dorn has a Master’s Degree in Geography and Regional Development from the University of Arizona, where he focused on uses of remote sensing technologies and GIS for conservation. Dorn’s undergraduate degree is from Beloit College (WI) in Anthropology and Spanish.
