Maria has devoted 10 years to activities in the field of Earth observation from space. The most important inspiration in her work is the unusually wide possibilities that satellite imagery data give us for solving various tasks. Space images are a unique tool that makes the world transparent and provides the most valuable information for all kinds of research. And it is also breathtakingly beautiful images, allowing you to look at objects, processes and phenomena on our planet from different points of view. The field of Earth observation is rapidly developing. New satellites are launched annually, satellite data become more accessible. In her opinion, the ability to work with such data and to receive actual information using them is the competence of the future, which can be mastered today. Therefore, her professional interests include the popularization of Earth observation technologies among schoolchildren and students. In her free time she studies psychology, does arts and crafts and painting, enjoys skiing and cycling, and brings up a curly cat with the cosmic name Cassiopeia.
