My work at BGI

I focus on the combination of optical properties of vegetation in order to develop new model-based remote sensing products related to ecophysiological variables and plant traits. I combine hyperspectral airborne imagery, coupled radiative transfer – biogeochemical models, machine learning and flux and biophysical variables. Though the research is oriented towards EnMap mission in the context of the MoReDEHESHyReS project, the big picture is contributing to the development of a new generation of remote sensing algorithms capable to meet challenges and demands posed by Global Change.


Research Interests

  • Radiation and vegetation and photosynthesis.
  • Remote sensing of vegetation photosynthesis, structure and traits.
  • Radiative transfer-biogeochemical models coupling
  • Machine learning and hybrid model inversion
  • EnMap Mission and data simulation
  • Multi-angular proximal and remote sensing
  • Automated proximal sensing, system development, sensor characterization and data processing
