Dr. Nuno Carvalhais
ELLIS program “Machine Learning for Earth and Climate Science”
Group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry Jena
Nuno is a group leader of the Model-Data Integration Research Group in Max Plank Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena since 2012, and an Invited Researcher in the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, New University of Lisbon, Portugal.
His research interests focus on the dynamics of terrestrial biogeochemical cycles, particularly on the evaluation and improvement of ecosystem modeling through data assimilation and inverse optimization approaches, and the introduction of deep-learning and novel hybrid modeling approaches in modeling terrestrial ecosystem processes.
Nuno studied Environmental Sciences and Engineering (MSc equivalent, 2000) and received a PhD in Environmental Engineering in 2010 from the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, New University of Lisbon, Portugal, on integrating multiple observational data streams and diagnostic modeling of ecosystem carbon fluxes, where emphasis was given in exploring the information content of carbonwater flux and satellite remote sensing data. Nuno has carried out research in Boston University, USA, and the Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA, USA and has been responsible and contributor in several Portuguese nationally funded and international (ESA, EU FP7, H2020) projects.
He has contributed to more than 60 peer reviewed publications (including Nature, Science, PNAS), with an h-index of 32 and close to 7000 citations (Google Scholar).
