Cartography & GIS


Sara is a PhD student at Ghent University as of October 2018. She investigates climate model sensitivity on surface processes. Within the context of the European project AFTER (ERANET-RUS) she focusses on climate simulations over Central-Asia, Russia and Eastern-Europe, a region where the climate information is scarce. Other research interests of Sara include urban heat island observations and modelling, thermal comfort modelling, and the development of GIS tools to employ land cover and land use databases for atmospheric modelling.
