I am a physical geographer using long-term remotely sensed data to investigate vegetation condition changes and dynamics in African rangelands. I mainly use coarse resolution time series, processed in RStudio and ArcMap. My PhD at the University of Southampton started after graduating from University College London with an MSc in climate change and a 6-months experience at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, within the spatial analysis unit.


2016   GIS Data Officer – Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew, London)


2015   MSc in Climate Change – University College London (UK)

2011   MSc in Geodynamics – Università degli Studi di Trieste (Italy)

2007   BSc in Geology – Università degli Studi di Trieste (Italy)

Research interests

I am interested in using and exploring remote sensing technology for terrestrial ecosystems monitoring, and how it can be used to support communities and policymakers. Specifically, I look at rangelands as they are such heterogeneous, fragile and climate-sensitive ecosystems, particularly in Africa.

My interests extend to science communication, as it is important to create better links between academic and non-academic environments.
