Senior Faculty Specialist
I received my Master’s Degree in Applied Physics with a concentration in Sciences, Technology and Environment from the University of Toulon-Var in France. I started my career as a Research Engineer at the LSCE (Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environment) in the suburb of Paris. At LSCE, I worked mainly with PARASOL-POLDER satellite data to develop a database of Land Surface Directional Signatures for Climate Change and Vegetation Cycle studies. Then, in 2009, I had the opportunity to work on MODIS satellite data processing in support of scientific studies at the Department on the team of Professor Eric Vermote. Currently, I still work with Dr. Eric Vermote on the development of the surface reflectance climate data record from MODIS and the satellite AVHRR-NOAA as a science collaborator in NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
