Main Focus

Overall, my research aims at improving our understanding of the role of terrestrial ecosystems in the Earth System by using data-driven yet process-based thinking applied to satellite Earth Observation (remote sensing) data.

  • Land-atmosphere interactions
  • Remote sensing of vegetation
  • Spatio-temporal statistical analysis
  • Land cover / land use / land management
  • Scale and spatial heterogeneity
