The experience acquired as GIS technician in different Copernicus projects and in LUCAS (Land use Land Cover assessment Survey), treating high resolution satellite images and SAR has provided her with a better understanding of the different land uses, from a local to a pan-European scale, taking into consideration the current climate crisis and the human-environment interactions.
