GIScience & Remote Sensing 
Vanessa Brum-Bastos
I  am PhD candidate in  Geography at the Departament of Geography and Sustainable Development, University of St. Andrews, Scotland - UK.  My current research involves using  geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing products and others sources of environmental information to answer ecological and human mobility problems. Specifically, I am interested in developing and applying novel methods for space-time analysis to contextualize movement databases and understand the connections between movement and surrounding environment. Currently, I focus largely on the development of methods for integrating spatial patterns movement data, e.g., data obtained through GPS tracking with environmental data. I am also interested in other research areas relating more broadly to GIScience; including thermal remote sensing, disaggregation models, enhancement of images,  GEOBIA, data mining for image classification and spatial analysis.
