About me

I´m a Geographer interested and trained in spatial modelling and ecosystem science through Earth Observation and GIS.

My current research focuses on remote sensing of plant functional types in the African Savanna.

As a researcher I aim to contribute critical information required for knowledge based decisions that combine prosperous development with sustainable use of resources and conservation of ecosystems and biodiversity.
