Célia Gouveia is currently a Researcher at the Institute Dom Luis (IDL), Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon. She has received her PhD in 2008 with an assessment of the impact of climate variability on vegetation dynamics in Europe, using remote sensing information. During the last years she has focused in the climate impacts on vegetation status, namely in the case of extreme events, such as droughts, heat waves and wildfires. She has also used remote sensing information to assess crops growth and production in Portugal, namely in the case of wheat and wine productions. Additionally she is also interested on the impact of climate variability and extremes on air quality and human mortality.
She has participated as member of the research team of several FCT projects and EU funded projects such as FUME and BEST RESULT. She has also participated as PI in AT2 and AT3 of the ACCENT NETWORK OF EXCELLENCE (Atmospheric Composition Change). She has a short term scientific misson in Zaragoza at the Instituto Pirinaico de Ecologia – Consejo Superior Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) working on drought impacts in vegetation over Mediterranean area, funded by European Science Foundation (ESF), through the European Project MedCLIVARShort Curriculum Vitae
