Research interests

My research is focused on using remotely sensed and spatial analysis to support forest mapping, monitoring and modelling. I am particularly interested in optical remote sensing data in service of natural environment and climate change related studies.

Personal interests

I love to spend my free time with friends and family having a good beer or wine. I also love to play soccer, tennis or any other sport.
