Research scientist

 My research is focused on the survey by remote sensing of anthropic impacts on the tropical rainforest. My main goal is to provide scientific tools to protect and manage tropical rainforests as well as develop monitoring systems capable of identifying environmental damages. Currently, I am studing deforestation, forest disturbance and pollution over time caused by oil extraction and exploration activities in the Amazon.

I got my PhD at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) in Februsry 2021. I hold a BSc in Environmental Science (University of Granada), a MSc in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (Institute of Space Sciences of Catalonia - IEEC) and a MSc in Interdisciplinary Studies in Environmental, Economic and Social Sustainability (ICTA-UAB). I have worked at the UAB and the Ecological and Forestry Applications Research Centre (CREAF) in several projects related to remote sensing, land cover and GIS.
