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, that are becoming essential in many fields, she had been focused during her study on trying to apply all the knowledge acquired at university for solving real problems and challenges related with ecological problems, nature or the use of renewable energy sources.
She is an ambitious young person really looking forward to new projects and challenges implying in some way to contribute to a “greener” world. The technical background regarding programming and data analysis in combination with her curiosity and a willingness to learn more about climate science makes her a different profile with different points of view which can add value.
