Xavier Corredor Llano
PhD student, Natural Resource and Environmental Studies, UNBC
I am a PhD student in the program Natural Resources and Environmental Studies at the University of Northern British Columbia, and I am part of the Conservation Solution Lab research group. My lines of research are about conservation planning and climate change and I am involved as a researcher in the Climate Adaptive Planning for British Columbia project.
My background is in computer science, but I am always passionate about forest and biodiversity conservation. Issues like deforestation, climate change, wildfires, and the impact of human activity on the ecosystems, and I always try to combine my professional background with those areas.
I have experience on various topics such as climate and weather forecast with physical models, process automation, parallel programming, geographic information systems, land cover change analysis and developments on GIS. I'm enthusiastic to free/libre and open source software too, and part of my spare time I try to involve and contribute to some projects.
