Abigail Uribe Martínez
She is a Computer Science Engineer. From the beginning of her career, she focused on performing spatial analysis from remote sensing for the study and management of ecosystems with particular emphasis on marine and coastal systems and species of conservation importance. She worked for 8 years in the National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity in the Biological Corridor, Mangrove Monitoring programs and in the oceanic and coastal monitoring of the Mexican seas. More recently she has been dedicated to the study of the vulnerability of species and ecosystems to anthropic impacts and natural events.
What is her role in CORESCAM?
In CORESCAM, it performs the processing and analysis of biophysical parameters derived from satellite images to associate them with the effects of extreme events on the structure and function of mangroves in the Yucatan Peninsula in two case studies.
