Yady Tatiana Solano Correa received the Bachelor (B.S.) degree in Physics Engineering (honorable mention) at the University of Cauca, Cauca, Colombia, in 2011; and the Ph.D. (cum laude) in Communication and Information Technologies from the University of Trento, Dept. of Information Engineering and Computer Science (Trento, Italy). She worked as a researcher and teaching assistant for the research groups: Optics and Laser Group (GOL) and Environmental Studies Group (GEA) from 2009 to 2013. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Remote Sensing for Digital Earth unit at FBK, Trento, Italy. She is a member of the RSLab at the University of Trento, Italy.
Her research interests include remote sensing environmental applications, change detection, both on medium resolution multispectral images (e.g. Landsat, Sentinel-2) and Very High Resolution (VHR) images, multitemporal analysis of short and long-time series, multisensor multitemporal image pre-processing and information extraction, pattern recognition and image classification. She works, and has worked, within the context of several projects with focus on analysing information for climate change and developing advanced change detection techniques for optical satellite time series data. Among them: (1) RICCLISA – Interinstitutional network of climate change and food security, Colombia. Founded by the Colombian administrative department of Science, Technology and Innovation - COLCIENCIAS, (2) MS-TS - Analysis of MultiSensor VHR image Time Series, in collaboration with Digital Globe Foundation and (3) SEOM – Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions – S2-4Sci Land and Water – Multi-temporal Analysis. Founded by European Space Agency (ESA).
She is a referee for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING, IEEE JOURNAL OF SELECTED TOPICS IN APPLIED EARTH OBSERVATIONS AND REMOTE SENSING and IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS journals. She won the best student oral presentation award at the “MultiTemp 2017 Conference”, held in June 2017 in Bruges, Belgium.
