Ana Silió-Calzada


    Ana Silió -Calzada has been a researcher at  IH Cantabria since 2009, specializing in remote sensing applied to aquatic systems.

    After graduating in 1998 in Marine Sciences from the University of Vigo , Dr. Silio entered the M.Sc. program Earth Sciences and Space York University (Canada) , where she majored in marine and airborne remote sensing perspective under the direction of Dr. John R. Miller . After graduating in 2002 , she joined the program "Young Graduate Trainee" ( YGT )  at the European Space Agency , within the Division of Earth Observation , based in Italy ( ESA / ESRIN ) , where Ana remained for two years. Her work was aimed at the exploitation of the optical sensor ( MERIS ) ENVISAT satellite. In 2004 Dr. Silio joined the team of marine optics and remote sensing of the Laboratoire d' Oceanographie of Villefranche (LOV ) of CNRS  to carry out her PhD program in Earth Sciences and Space at the University Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris VI (France ) . Under the supervision of Dr. Annick Bricaud , with a thesis on the estimation of new primary production in coastal upwelling areas, data from multiple satellite sensors. The project's goal was to harness the synergy between sensors of different nature for biogeophysical variables and causes of their variability over time, with the Benguela ecosystem, as a case study . For this project , she was awarded a scholarship financed by the French Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales ( CNES ) and the company ACRI -st .
