Spatio-temporal modelling and integration of information on soil-plant-climate interactions with land use, to assess the role of key natural resources supporting ecosystem services and to quantify the impacts of climate and land use changes at different spatial scales with uncertainty propagation.
Analysis of the trade-offs between land uses, with spatially explicit multicriteria decision analysis.
Spatial and (geo)statistical modelling and integration of environmental data at different spatial scales.
HPC for spatial and geostatistical algorithms and models, in particular Digital Soil Mapping. Open source workflows (R, python, bash, GRASS GIS) to integrate remote sensing information with ground data
