José Gómez-Dans is a research associate in the Department of Geography at King’s College London, situated at the Strand Campus in London. He earned his PhD from the University of Sheffield, where his research focused on the application of polarimetry and interferometry in SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) image analysis.
José has an extensive academic and research background. Prior to joining King’s College London, he was at University College London for nearly a decade. During this period, his research covered a wide range of areas, including multi-sensor data assimilation, Bayesian methods for crop and vegetation modelling, and the development of innovative techniques for monitoring vegetation disturbances, particularly wildfires using EO (Earth Observation).
José has also successfully secured grants, such as the Transforming Food Production Seeding Award and the role of principal investigator on the H2020 MULTIPLY project, and he was involved in the Newton Prize 2019 Chair’s Prize for “Crop monitoring for global food security.” In addition to his research efforts, José has been actively involved in education, designing, and delivering MSc courses, supervising dissertations, and mentoring both undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as fellow researchers.
His current research interests include developing new ways to understand fire and vegetation disturbance from Earth Observation, data assimilation for fire and disturbance characterization, and using EO to understand the evolution of the land surface.
