While conducting science in the field as a PhD in ecology, Dr. Gregory Crutsinger caught the drone bug, and began testing the use of UAVs in experimental research. He made the leap from academia to the drone industry, working for some of the leading drone hardware and software companies. He founded Scholar Farms as a commercial drone training company to meet the growing demand for professional training on the data side of UAVs.
Immediately following the launch of Scholar Farms, devastating wildfires began to hit California. Greg has volunteered his time as a drone data analyst for public safety drone teams mapping in the aftermath of the Tubbs, Carr, and Camp Fire.
