Cano Crespo, Ana
973 48 1752 (268)

Environmental Scientist (University of Salamanca)

Postgraduate in Geographic Information Systems (ITC, The Netherlands)

PhD in Physical Geography (Humboldt University of Berlin).


Her research interests are around the implications of anthropogenic land-use changes and climate change on soil water resources, the spatio-temporal distribution of (forest) fires, and the evolving characteristics of fire regimes.

She has developed most of her research and project management experience at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (Germany). She currently works as a project manager with focus on the Horizon Europe programme.
