Dr. Isabel Caballero de Frutos is a full-time Post-Doc researcher working as Principal Investigator of the Sen2Coast Project in the Ecosystems and Oceanography Research Group at the Institute of Marine Sciences of Andalusia (ICMAN-CSIC). Her research line is broadly focused on applying remote sensing techniques and cutting-edge science to study aquatic environments, including wetland, estuarine, inland, coastal and offshore ecosystems, to improve understanding of marine processes and support coastal management. Thanks to a postdoctoral award of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, Medicine and Engineering, Isabel Caballero worked at NOAA (2017-2019) under the supervision of Dr. Richard P. Stumpf. Currently, Dr. Caballero is implementing methodologies for the application of the Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-3 fleet of the European Copernicus programme to improve coastal monitoring, specifically water quality and sea bottom mapping. Dr. Caballero aims at highlighting the promising capability of this enhanced information to support cost-effective management for innovative Earth Observation initiatives focused on studying the response of estuarine and coastal ecosystems to global change. Dr. Caballero has received numerous scholarships by ESA and NASA to attend international training courses. Her scientific production to date is summarized in 30 peer-reviewed publications indexed in the JCR-SCI. She is the author or co-author of several non-SCI publications, proceedings and chapters of indexed scientific books.
