Dr. Claudia Maria de Almeida graduated in Architecture and Town Planning from the University of Sao Paulo - USP (1989), owns a Masters Degree in Infrastructure Planning from the Centre for Infrastructure Planning, Universität Stuttgart, Germany (1995), accomplished part of her PhD in Remote Sensing at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis - University College London, England, UK (2002) as an affiliate researcher and achieved a PhD in Remote Sensing from INPE (2003). She concluded a post-doc program in Spatial Dynamic Modelling at INPE in 2004. She is currently a Senior Researcher - Level III - at INPE, where she coordinates the CITIES Laboratory. She is an Accredited Professor at the Agrarian University La Molina (Peru). She was a Lecturer at the International Space University (ISU) and was an Accredited at UFPR, at USP, at the São Paulo State University Julio de Mesquita Filho (UNESP) and at the Federal University of Santa Maria (UFSM). She was also an Invited Professor at the Graduate Programs in Applied Computer Science and in Earth System Science of INPE. She is the present leader of the CNPq (Brazilian National Council for Scientific Research) Research Group entitled 'Systems and Methods for Land Planning and Management' and she was also a member of the CNPq Research Group of the Laboratory for Computer Vision of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-RJ). She has been a CNPq and FAPESP ad-hoc consultant since 2005 and also a consultant of the US National Science Foundation (NSF) since 2018. She is a permanent professor of the Graduate Program in Remote Sensing at INPE, which owns CAPES (Brazilian National Coordination for the Upgrade of Graduate Personnel) Grade 7 (maximum). She was INPEs Coordinator of the Brazilian Network for Advanced Computer Vision - RVA from SIBRATEC/MCTI (System for Technological Innovation of the Federal Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation), targeted to technological research innovation. She coordinates national and international research projects and is a referee of several national and international conferences and peer-reviewed journals of acknowledged excellence. She served as an Associate Editor for the Brazilian Journal of Cartography (RBC), as a Guest Editor for special issues of IEEE J-STARS, ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing and Remote Sensing (MDPI), and as a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Earth-Observations-X (NASA). She is at present an Associate Editor of the ISPRS Journal and of Frontiers in Remote Sensing. She organised several meetings with the participation of renown international experts. She attended Masters and PhD examination boards in a large number of Brazilian universities. She has accomplished the supervision of over 20 works among Masters, PhD and post-doc students. She had awarded papers in conferences, like LBA in 2004 (The 16th Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia - Science Steering Committee Meeting), SBSR in 2009 (the XIV Brazilian Symposium on Remote Sensing) and BBEST in 2011 (1st Brazilian BioEnergy Science and Technology Conference). One of the books organised by her (Geomatics: Environmental Models and Applications) was a finalist in the 50th Jabuti Award (from the Brazilian Book Chamber) in 2008 in the category Best Book of Sciences, Technology, and Informatics. She also had one of her papers in which she stands as the 1st author among the Top 25 Hottest Articles from Computers, Environment and Urban Systems - Elsevier in 2004, 2005, and 2006, besides having another paper as the 1st author as well among the Top 12 Cited Articles from the International Journal of Geographical Information Science - Taylor Francis from 2006 to 2010. Her experience comprises Geoscience, focusing on Remote Sensing, with a particular emphasis on the following subjects: Urban Remote Sensing, Town Planning, Cellular Automata, Urban Modelling, High Resolution Sensors, OBIA, and Geomatics.
