Francisco J. Ruiz Gómez
PhD Student
Forest Engineer, Master in Biotechnology (University of Córdoba). He is specialized in Ecophysiology of Forest Systems and biotic interactions in the Quercus forest decline. His current research develops different aspect involved in the quantification of rot root caused by oomycetes, and the relationship between rot root level and the physiologic status of the tree.

 Francisco José Romero
Research focused on the processing and analysis of LiDAR, high resolution multispectral imaging to study the forest environment. Research projects based on the characterization and quantification of fuel, and structural and physiological forest study.

 Rafael Mª Navarro Cerrillo
Forest Engineer from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and currently Vice Dean of International and Institutional Relations at the School of Agricultural Engineering and Forestry-University of Córdoba. Former Research director of the Group “Restoration and Assessment of agricultural and forestry systems” whose main activities are focused on the study of forest systems, climate change impacts and remote sensing applied to land use monitoring in Mediterranean and tropical environments. This research has been developed in collaboration with national and international agencies in several countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia. European project in progress African Network for Education in Energy Resources-UE-EuropeAid/132023/D/ ACT/ACPTPS and A new tool for sustainable forest management based on LIDAR and THERMAL data integration-FP7-SME-2012-315165. 

He has collaborated with foreign centers in Israel, University of Missouri- Columbia, University of Berkeley, L'Institut agronomique et vétérinaire Hassan II (IAV Hassan II), Murdoch University (Australia), and he has collaborated with several European Universities. These collaborations have resulted in more than 70 international publications in peer reviewed journals (Forest Ecology and Management, Annals of Forest Science, Ecological Engineering, Proteomics, Environmental Management, Journal of Arid Environments, etc).
