Research interests

My broad research interests are in the mapping, monitoring and modelling of land cover change using remote sensing technologies and GIS.

I am also interested in the inter-relationship between land use change and land degradation, particularly in the drylands of Sub-Saharan Africa and the Mediterranean, i.e. desertification.

I use multitemporal and multisensor satellite data and time series analysis for assessing the evolution of land cover through time.
