Research interests

I am interested in land cover land use change analysisI am interested in RS-GIS modeling for land use planningI am interested in dendrochronological applications in Physical Geography specifically in Geomorphology and Hydrology


I am a physical geographer with 25 year of professional experience, 13 of them as researcher at the National Autonomous University of México. I do research about spatial planning and natural resources management based on geomorphologic, hydrologic and landscape ecology knowledge, and intensive use of remote sensing products, GIS and statistical techniques.
