Dr. Rick Crowsey

Dr. Crowsey is a forensic geographer at Crowsey Incorporated in Hattiesburg, Mississippi (rick AT crowsey.com). His research interests include the intersection of geography and the law; spatial frequency-based assessment of disaster damage; emergency response, recovery and monitoring; and mass and toxic tort cases where location is a key issue. He was awarded patent no. US 9,159,132 B1 in 2013 covering his work on extracting information from the spatial frequency domain of overhead imagery. He has testified in federal and states courts as a qualified expert in the areas of forensic geography, geography, imagery, image interpretation, cartography, satellite imagery, weather, geographic analysis and remotely sensed imagery. Significant cases he has been retained on include the Gulf of Mexico BP oil spill, several refinery spills, several large chemical processing facility spills, releases and explosions and a wide array of cases where location is a key factor informing an understanding of risk, liability, consequences and responsibility (e.g., light pollution, agriculture smell torts, rail crossing accidents, maritime collisions, allisions and runaway vessels; flood, tornado & hurricane caused incidents; and international civil rights violations). Prior to Crowsey Incorporated he designed, built and fielded air and satellite based optical systems that detected and/or guided national defense systems and assets. Rick earned undergraduate degrees in imaging science from Rochester Institute of Technology, and graduate degrees in general systems theory from the University of Denver and geography from the University of Southern Mississippi. He is a U.S. citizen, a certified diver, and a general aviation pilot.
