He has experience in Blue Carbon both from “in situ” assessments and spatial changes of mangrove and seagrass covers, as well as assessments of the resilience of seagrasses to the impacts of natural events (red seas). He has experience in the creation and edition of thematic carbon, landscape and spatial analysis maps focused on the ordering and characterization of the territory using GIS tools such as ArcGis, QGis, Envi, Erdas Imagine; and he has experience in handling and analyzing data with Paquetería R.
