Research Fellow, Faculty of Social Sciences
I am an Earth Observation scientist using GIS and statistics for understanding the environment. My main research interests are: a) to improve understanding of how vegetation responds to climatological events by exploring remotely sensed data; b) to monitor these changes through time; c) to understand how ecosystem productivity is linked to environmental conditions; d) assessing vegetation condition and land cover change.
I am currently working as a research associate in the Integrated ClimAte Resilience UnderStanding (ICARUS) Belize project funded by Leverhulme Trust responsible for analysing climatological data and detecting extreme weather events by using precipitation time series dataset and observations from satellites through the EU Copernicus programme. I am also responsible for researching and developing workflows (using R, Python and Google Earth Engine).
I have worked previously in various projects including permafrost thawing in the Arctic, developing a sargassum monitoring system in the Mexican Caribbean Coast, peatlands subsidence in South East Asia, mapping and quantifying above and below ground C stocks in coastal wetlands in Mexico, mapping the UK component of the CORINE Land Cover map (2018), and understanding resilience to the impacts of extreme weather in the Yucatan Peninsula.
I study environment processes through remote sensing data.

My Ph.D. dissertation was supervised by Prof Sarah Metcalfe and Dr Doreen Boyd, employing remote sensing for understanding how different types of vegetation respond to droughts and for relating them to other sources of information such as climatological data and land use.
After my PhD I worked as a Research Associate in two projects. One in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico to understand the impact of droughts using different sources of data (e.g. Sentinel data, climatological data, and qualitative data from anthropological work), and the other one mapping and assessing carbon stocks in three wetlands systems in Mexico.
I would love to continue researching the scope of remote sensing for understanding better environmental processes and climate change.
