Research Interests

I have performed research within urban modelling (with focus on urban growth) and coastal systems. In this research studies I have used several spatial modelling techniques (multi-criteria analysis, cellular automata, etc.) as well as object based image analysis of remote sensing data. I have been guest editor of a special issue about entropy in urban systems (Entropy journal) and I am on the editorial board of the Journal of Urban Planning and Development (ASCE - American Society of Civil Engineering). I have recently published a paper of database modelling in the context of Inspire. In my current post-doc period in UMR AMURE (Brest, France), my research concentrates on spatial models for marine and terrestrial ecosystem services.
