Research Interests

Currently, I am an international visiting research student from Finland. My study areas include GIS & remote sensing in boreal forests (Nordic countries), spatial statistics with R & Fragstats and watershed management in Mediterranean countries.

My current research interests is landscape ecology and spatial analysis with GIS & statistical tools. I like working on cases to design wood product supply chain and feed stocks transportation route map by GIS tools (ArcGIS & QGIS) and high resolution satellite image.

Also, I like dealing with calculation and analysis of spatial statistics. These statistical interests mainly apply on spatial patterns relationship in landscape ecology, land use and land use change combined with time and climate changes.
