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, does arts and crafts, goes skiing and cycling, and raises a curly-haired cat with the cosmic name of Cassiopeia.
Participation in the IRS for Maria is an opportunity to plunge into the creative atmosphere of a research project, meet people from different parts of our planet who are passionate about science and, of course, find new like-minded friends.
