Research profile

My focus is on applying crop models to assess the impact of climate change on crops at both field and regional scale in order to contribute to the improvement of food production. I am particularly interested and worked on topics such as:

  • Use of remote sensing data to extract soil, crop and management variables
  • Investigate the interactions between heat stress, drought and [CO2]
  • Evaluate the response of crops on different fertilizer levels under future climate
  • Supervise and conduct field experiments.
