Nita Mihai

I am Associate Professor at Department of Forest Engineering, Transilvania University of Brasov. His subject is Forest Hydrology and Hydrotechnical Terrestrial Measurements. As a researcher I have involved projects regarding forest management and monitoring, mainly as GIS expert on topics like LULUCF (land use, land-use change and forestry) using remote sensing and drone mapping, modelling habitat distributions for species, evaluating Forest Ecosystem Services (FES), developing and managing GIS databases and WebGIS apps.

From September 2016 to March 2017 as Fulbright Scholar at University of Wisconsin-Madison, I was exploring the effect of wars and political conflict on forest ecosystems in Romania by assessing the forest disturbances during Soviet occupation (1945 - 1956) using a heuristic method based on SfM (Structure from Motion) and DISI (Declassified Intelligence Satellite Imagery) and comparing with the recent rates of disturbance in forests after 1990.
