I am a PhD student based at the University of St Andrews and Kew Gardens. My research is focused on developing a novel monitoring approach on the land use and land cover change (LULCC) in Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests (SDTFs) in Caatinga. This work involves the collaboration between multispectral and hyperspectral remote sensing and feature extraction using different spectral information. My background is in Environmental Science and Environmental Engineering. My previous research include monitoring and predicting the LULCC in Peru.
