Dinis Manuel Teixeira Pereira

Post-Doc Researcher

Collaborator in the GEVA – Group of Vegetation Applied Ecology (Coordinator: Professor Eduardo Dias), Dinis Pereira holds a degree in Environmental Engineering from the University of the Azores and has completed a master's degree in Geography Information Systems from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro. He have Advanced Studies in Landscape, Biodiversity and Society and a PhD (since 2015) in Agricultural Sciences, Soil Science Specialty, under the theme "Assessment of the value of the ecosystems of peatbogs of the Azores, using modelling in Geographic Information Systems".

He participated in several national projects such as Natura 2000 Network, LIFE, Interreg, Monitoring, on Terceira Island, of the geothermal project and in Insular Wetland Restoration project, as well as in Forestry Monitoring Plan. He taught, in practical classes, Botany, GPS application and digital cartography in caving and mountaineering practices, biomonitoring and ecological monitoring techniques, Ecology and Ecosystem Management. Currently the domain of specialization and research is focused on modelling with the use of GIS, Ground Penetrating Radar and Remote Sensing in Natural and anthropic vegetation.

In 2005 was recognized, with GEVA, as Intergraph Registered Research Laboratory. It is currently carrying out research through a protocol with the European Space Agency, Copernicus Research and User Support Service portal, Planet’s Education and Research Program, DigitalGlobe Foundation and Hexagon Geospatial for new satellite imagery applications in the management and monitoring of ecosystems and species in the Azores.
