impact assessment, and environmental baseline studies, with
extensive use of statistical/numerical methods for the analysis of
ecological data. Research focused specifically on remote sensing
applied to oceanography and environmental studies, including image
management & correction, geo referencing, data extraction, and
spatial modeling. Data analysis developed mostly in R using Python
and other tools when needed. Highly
experienced in classical to modern statistical analysis (EDA, linear
regression, ANOVA), multivariate analysis using ordination methods
(mostly MDS classification), and machine learning algorithms for

classification trees). Experience with time series analysis (time and
frequency domains) for meteorological, oceanographic, and RS data for
more than 20 environmental impact assessments
and baseline studies.
Skilled in analysis of complex geospatial layers to model and
evaluate human impacts on marine ecosystems, design pipeline routes
and coastal facilities for the oil industry, and to configure a
system for the selection of priority conservation areas.
