Davide Lomeo is a current PhD student in the Geography Department. His current research focuses on understanding the long-term climatic and environmental drivers that promote cyanobacteria blooms and toxin production in tropical lakes in Southern and Eastern Africa, trying to link favourable environmental conditions to wildlife die-off events across the continent.
Davide completed a BSc (Hons) in Geography with Geocomputation and Spatial Analysis at King’s College London and an MSc in Applied Computational Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. For his MSc thesis, Davide has developed a multiclass deep learning algorithm to classify mangroves in Southeast Asia using remote sensing imagery.
Davide has expertise in remote sensing applications, computational modelling, and machine learning. He is especially interested in using climate data, large scale climate systems, and remote sensing to model Earth's surface and ecological systems dynamics to answer questions about the mechanics of physical processes and conservation.
Thesis title: 'Influence of environmental change on water quality and the risks of toxic algal blooms to wildlife in Africa'
