Interview with Margherita Bruscolini, Geospatial & Earth Scientist, Drone Pilot at RSS-Hydro
University of Salzburg Department of Geoinformatics Z_GIS
The Department of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS at the University of Salzburg is a well established centre of competence in GIScience, active in research and education in collaboration with academic and industry partners from the geospatial sector. At the same time, our team of Geoinformatics specialists contribute their skills and expertise to study programmes and research at Salzburg University as well as a range of international partner organisations.
The department is divided into the following divisions:
International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
The International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) is an independent, international research institute with National Member Organizations in Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe. Through its research programs and initiatives, the institute conducts policy-oriented research into issues that are too large or complex to be solved by a single country or academic discipline. This includes pressing concerns that affect the future of all of humanity, such as climate change, energy security, population aging, and sustainable development.
Geospatial & Earth Scientist, Drone Pilot at GLOBHE
Interdisciplinary Earth Scientist with a background in geologic/environmental sciences and international experience working with Earth Observation, remote sensing, drones, and hydrological/flood modeling to study water risks, extreme events, and climate change impacts. Passionate about sustainability, environmental protection, and innovations that can make a real impact, I'm participating in the activities of the humanitarian sector, working on development aid projects, participating to the WFP Drones Technical Working Group, and assisting the work of NGOs during Mapathons.
