    Personal profile

    Research interests (short)

    My research interests focus on monitoring land surface dynamics with thermal remote sensing. More recently my research has involved applying thermal remote sensing techniques to address key questions regarding fire impact and effects. This research has involved the development of a global fire detection and characterisation algorithm on geostationary satellite including SEVIRI, GOES, MTSAT and FY2.
