My research interests involve sampling, agricultural statistics, remote sensing time series, land cover and land use change mapping. I received a B.S. degree in Economics, a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Remote Sensing. Since graduating I have been working on crop area and yield forecasting. In the last 5 years, my research has been focused on Brazilian Amazon land cover and land use changes and their drivers and impacts.
