Karine is a post-doctoral researcher in the CSTARS lab, UC Davis. She is currently working in the team of the NASA HyspIRI Preparatory Science initiative. Her research focuses on the inversion of canopy leaf biochemical traits by means of radiative transfer modeling for biodiversity assessment and ecological issues induced by climate change over different ecosystems - drought monitoring and temporal change dynamics. Vegetation species, structural composition and spatial distribution are studied as potential factors impacting data scaling from ground measurements to the remote sensing pixel.
She has an engineering and master degree in Signal/Image processing, then a PhD in remote sensing and radiative transfer. Her previous work was dedicated to the impact of shadows in presence of trees in remote sensing for both (i) land cover mapping, dealing with atmospheric correction issues at very high spatial resolution with hyperspectral airborne imagery and (ii) land surface radiation budget estimation by using 3D radiative transfer modeling of trees in urban environments. Her passion is to understand the physics behind the remote sensing signal acquisition at different scales and its relationship with the retrieval of essential climate variables. This also includes the design of new sensors and she participated to the evaluation of the French HYPXIM hyperspectral spaceborne sensor to estimate and map soil perennial properties such as clay content.
