Dr.ir. R. (Raquel) Serrano Calvo
Dr. ir. Raquel Serrano is a researcher in remote sensing of air pollution at the Atmospheric Science group of the Geoscience and Remote sensing department. She graduated in geological engineering (University of Barcelona) and obtained a masters degree in Geographical Information Sciences (University of Aberdeen). In 2020, she obtained her Ph.D. in Remote sensing (University of Dundee) investigating the impacts of hydrocarbons in vegetation and how to detect them using remote sensing techniques.
Raquel has a postdoc position in the Geoscience and Remote sensing department at TU Delft measuring oil and gas emissions from space with special interest in methane and nitrogen dioxide data from TROPOMI (TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument) instrument on board of Copernicus Sentinel-5 satellite. This research is in collaboration with the KNMI, the University of Colorado Boulder and Shell.
Research interests: atmospheric and land pollution, optical remote sensing, environmental monitoring, O&G emissions and climate change.
