Maria has been working in the field of the Earth observation from space for more than 10 years. The most important inspiration in her work is the unusually wide possibilities that satellite imagery gives us for solving a variety of problems. Space images are a unique tool that makes the world transparent and provides valuable information for all kinds of research. They are also breathtakingly beautiful images that allow to look at objects, processes and phenomena on our planet from different points of view.
The field of the Earth observation from space is developing rapidly. New satellites are launched every year, and data becomes more accessible. In my opinion, the ability to work with such data and, thanks to it, receive up-to-date information in a timely manner are the competencies of the future, which can be mastered today. Therefore, Maria's professional interests include the popularization of satellite imagery technologies among schoolchildren and students.
In her free time, she studies psychology, do arts and crafts and painting, enjoy skiing and cycling, and raise a curly-haired cat with the cosmic name Cassiopeia.
Participation in IRS for Maria is an opportunity to plunge into the creative atmosphere of a research project, meet people passionate about science from different parts of our planet and, of course, find new like-minded friends.
