Héctor Nieto, PhD
Remote Sensing and Numerical Modelling
10 years of postdoctoral experience and 40+ research papers in ISI indexed journals (h-index 15). Dr. Nieto has participated and lead several projects, working in international centres such as the USDA Agricultural Research Service, the University of Copenhagen and the Maison de la Télédétection de Montpellier. His research interests are modelling evapotranspiration and nutrient status with remote sensing over both natural vegetation and croplands, with
particular emphasis on the efficient use of water in heterogeneous canopies. Based on his research, Dr. Nieto contributes to open-source solutions for academic and non-academic users (https://github.com/hectornieto) .
Pablo J. Torres
Remote Sensing & Forest Health
In recent years I have focused my activity in two main fields, Remote Sensing and team management. I have been lucky to evolve and work within different projects at Rey Juan Carlos University, University of Alcalá and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. My interest and activity are currently focused on the integration of different remote sensing technologies for their implementation at different scales in the field of Forest Health Monitoring.
