Research interests

My research interests include ecology, land management practices, remote sensing, and multidisciplinary approaches that promote sustainability and social well-being. I use remote sensing data and tools to monitor and assess pressing environmental issues. In particular, I have worked on several national and international projects related to glaciers status, emergency support mapping, forest fuel mapping services, REDD+ activities, nutrient balance in agro-ecosystems, land-use intensity, and gross primary production. I had the opportunity to be involved in several projects related to the Copernicus Programme during the time I worked as remote sensing and GIS analyst for GMV.

In May 2018, I joined the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre (SBIK-F) to work on the GEOEssential project. SBiK-F leads the work package number 4, which focuses on developing workflows to monitor the implementation of selected environmental policies using Copernicus products.
