Research interests

I am an environmental scientist hugely invested on machine learning and artificial intelligence. I am interested on how novel computer vision and generative algorithms can improve environmental monitoring, as well as, how artificial general intelligence can lead to a better environmental management and decision making. My vision for environmental problem solving relies on the use of deep learning as a dynamic adviser to help us set the rules by which humans best interact with the environment. I believe that current artificial intelligence can help in finding the equilibrium that maximizes both: the benefits we get from nature, and the stability and resilience of the natural systems.

Ph.D. project

Data-driven modeling (deep learning) of temporal and spatial context effects in Earth System data.
