Dr Rochelle Schneider
PhD, MSc, MRes
Geospatial Data Science
15-17 Tavistock Place
I'm also visiting scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
I hold a PhD in Geospatial Analytics from UCL (2019), a MSc in Geographic Information System and Science with distinction from Salzburg University (Best dissertation of the year award in 2017), a MRes in Remote Sensing with distinction from a Federal University in Brazil (2014). Before starting my PhD, I worked in the private sector in projects involving: (i) classification of permanent preservation areas, using QuickBird and SPOT-5 satellites; (ii) agricultural monitoring and crop estimating, using RapidEye and WorldView-2 satellites; (iii) rural land inventory registration, using GNSS satellites; and (iv) socio-economic and spatial slum census, using GPS-enabled portable computers.

I am passionate about Earth Observation missions and an advocate of building opportunities to introduce the benefits of satellite technologies into public health research, unlocking and ensuring the generation of global impacts.
I have been conducting multidisciplinary research between satellite technologies and human health for the last five years. I've high degree of expertise in the management, processing, and synchronisation of high-volume of data from earth observation satellites (NASA and European Space Agency), climate- and atmospheric-models (ECMWF and GMAO-NASA).
