Francescopaolo Sica

We are very pleased to announce that our colleague Dr. Francescopaolo Sica is the recipient of the Living Planet Fellowship 2018 from the European Space Agency (ESA). It consists of a two-years Post-Doctoral co-financing program for carrying out a research project at a host Institution in an eligible ESA member state. Francescopaolo won for his project proposal named HI-FIVE, aimed at modeling backscatter signatures and temporal coherence dynamic of Sentinel-1 together with the generation of high-resolution forest-coverage and deforestation maps from InSAR data. We congratulate Francescopaolo and wish him all the best for the future!
