Titulatură: Earth Observation Data Scientist at the European Space Agency (ESA)

Ce înseamnă „Going Beyond”?

Perspective is a powerful tool for understanding. Looking at us from Space provides scientists with a unique insight into how our planet operates as a system, and enables us to see beyond human senses to develop our world in a sustainable manner.

Despre: Pierre-Philippe is passionate about innovation and our planet: its beauty, fragility and complex dynamics as part of an integrated Earth System. His current role at ESA is to help scientists, innovators and citizens to use high-tech (such as satellite data) to better monitor, understand and preserve our home planet, by making sustainable use of its limited natural resources.

PP’s background is in Earth Sciences. He has a degree in engineering and M.Sc from the University of Liege (Belgium), a Ph.D. in climate science from the University of Louvain (Belgium), and a Management degree from the University of Reading Business School (Uk). Over the last 20 years, he has been working in environmental monitoring and modelling, across disciplines from remote sensing, modelling up to weather risk management.

Currently, PP is trying to connect the global picture we get from space with world challenges in daily life, fostering the use of our Earth Observation (EO) missions to support science, innovation and development in partnership with user communities, industry and businesses.
