Interview with Dr. Avid Roman-Gonzalez

Dr. Avid Roman-Gonzalez is a professor at Universidad Nacional Tecnologica de Lima Sur, teaching electronic engineering and telecommunications. He has worked extensively on the quality of satellite images and in one project used such images for post-disaster management after floods in Peru. He believes that access to such images can be crucial for monitoring water quality and pollution. For example, he was part of a team to use remote sensing images and GIS to study algal bloom pollution of Lake Titicaca, between Peru and Bolivia. To innovate, Dr. Roman-Gonzalez says one needs to think about the problems that society has and devise creative solutions for all, and believe that reading, alongside the execution of daily tasks are essential for productive work.
