Mariano Gonzalez-Roglich, Ph.D.

Director, Ecosystem Analysis, Nature-based Solutions

Mariano has joined the Geospatial Applications team at the Moore center for Science. He is interested in the use of geospatial technologies to study land-use and land-cover change dynamics to better inform management and conservation strategies.

He is currently working on developing methodologies and guidance for monitoring land degradation, and other projects for the Ecosystem Services team including the development of a global hotspots map for nature-based climate change adaptation and mitigation opportunities, as well as Firecast.

Before coming to Conservation International, Mariano worked as a Postdoctoral Associate at the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University. He holds a PhD in Environmental Science and Policy (Duke University) and a Masters in Interdisciplinary Ecology (University of Florida).​
