Daniela is a Postgraduate Research Student within the School of Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

I began my degree in Geography at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in 2011. Soon after I started working in data bases creation and data analysis related to semi-arid regions and fog water measurements, doing my thesis for my undergrade on the behavior of the stratocumulus cloud over the Tarapacá region under the effect of extreme climate events.

The same year that I finished my degree, I applied to the Master program in Southampton, continuing the path of research semi-arid environment with remote sensing.


2018: MSc. in Applied Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing, University of Southampton

2017: Geography. Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

Research interests

My main research topic is the development of a country-scale assessment of the desertification phenomenon and how this affects society. Considering that the desertification has a social impact that remains unmeasured or is only measured in relation to the water availability. My purpose is to measure and analyse how much has changed, separating the impact on the vegetation characteristics and its impact on society, on semi-arid areas considering climate change, policy-making and mitigation measures, and others, taken on the past 30 years.

Research project: “Country-scale assessment of the desertification phenomenon and its impacts on society”.

Supervisors: Prof Jadu Dash and Dr Booker Ogutu
