Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Research Interests

My research interests embrace multidisciplinary topics, mainly involving remote sensing, land changes, hydrology and climate change. I have particular interest in environmental change processes in tropical regions. During the last years I have been carrying out research in the Amazon rainforest region and the East African Mountains.
