Main Research Field:
Ecosystem Services and Decision Support Systems

Was employee in BC3 from 2012 to 2015

Short CV

Elena works on ecosystem services modelling using the ARIES modelling platform (http://www.ariesonline.org). The aim of the research is to characterize how food security and other ecosystem services interact and how they are affected by climate change. As a member of the Computing department at the University of Surrey, she worked on the application of Bayesian Belief Networks for estimating the GHG emissions produced by the UK Agriculture sector at the Farm level (BaNGAS). She joined the project after spending a number of years both in Industry and Academia. In the Telecommunications and Electronics sector, she carried out research on the application of Artificial Intelligence techniques for improving the process followed to build the software embedded in electronic products. In Academia she lectured mainly in Data Processing, and carried out research in Knowledge based systems. She holds undergraduate qualifications in Computer Science Engineering, and post-graduate qualifications in Information Technology, Environmental & Energy Studies, and Artificial Intelligence.
