Amelia Fernández MSc. holds a BSc. In Telecommunications Systems Engineering and a MSc. In Telecommunications Engineering from Polytechnical University of Cartagena, Spain. Taking advantage of the wide range of possible applications of Telecommunications, she had been focused during her study on trying to use remote sensing for solving real problems and challenges related to Climate Change and Earth Observation.

Amelia has developed expertise in geospatial analysis, software development and forecasting tools for supporting sustainable water resources management and developing climate adaptation strategies.In addition, she has designed and delivered training programs in countries such as Zambia and Pakistan for well-known institutions as NUFFIC (the Netherlands) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (UN-FAO).
