Carlota Segura García has a degree in Physics from the University of Barcelona (UB), Spain, from where she graduated in 2015. Then, she went on to study an MSc in Complex Systems Modelling at King’s College London (2016). After her master’s, she left academia for a few years and went on to work in different areas. In 2017, she worked as a Data Analysis and Statistics intern at the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Copenhagen (Denmark) for six months. Then, she went on to work as an analyst in Edinburgh (UK) for David Simmonds Consultancy (2018), a company specialised in econometrics using Land-Use and Transport Interactions models. Both before and after these two professional experiences she also worked as a Teaching Assistant for the undergraduate degree of Mathematics at King’s College London, where she taught various courses on Statistics and Probability, Algebra, Calculus and Differential Equations.

She is currently a student at the Environmental Research DTP (NERC) DPhil programme at the University of Oxford. She is working at the School of Geography and the Environment looking at ways to characterise the patterns of fire occurrence in the Brazilian savannas, with a particular interest on how we can describe patterns of fire heterogeneity. With this aim, she uses satellite data, spatial and temporal statistical analysis, QGIS, Python and R.
