I’m a Researcher at Leipzig University. My research interests include temporal changes of radar backscatter to characterize vegetation phenology. I also analyse the quality of optical pixels in tropical environments. After cloud and cloud shadows filtering I use multiespectral imagery to obtain land cover classes. Other topics of interest are burned area and deforestation. See also my personal website:


  • Wetlands and hydrology
  • Classification of Remote Sensing imagery
  • Thermal anomalies and burned area
  • Radar time series


  • PhD in Remote Sensing, 2009

    Universidad de Alcalá, Spain

  • MSc Forestry, 1998
