Postdoctoral reseacher

Research interest and expertise

Passive and active microwave remote sensing, soil moisture, cryosphere, hydrologic modelling.
The main subject of my research work conducted within the chair is related to the assessment of soil moisture in boreal forests using passive and active microwave satellite imagery. More specifically, I am attempting to determine the effects of forest fires on soil moisture dynamics and, ultimately, on the hydrological regime of the affected regions.
