Mother Earth (2011)

Paulo is interested in the monitoring of agriculture systems, forest transitions and their connection with socio-environmental processes. Using remote sensing time-series he wants to document, establish and understand specific links between landscape changes and complex social issues such as armed conflict.

I am a topographic Engineer from Universidad del Valle (Cali-Colombia) with a Master in Sustainable Forest Management from Oregon State University (OSU). I worked at Colombian Sugarcane Research Center (CENICAĂ‘A), and as an assistant professor in Universidad del Tolima (Ibague-Colombia). Nowadays. I am pursuing a PhD in Geography at OSU, establishing a causal linkage between temporal stages of armed conflict and their repercussion on natural ecosystems.
