Romy is a geologist and senior researcher in Earth Observation for natural hazards analysis at the Centre Spatial de Liège, University of Liège.
Her current research interests include remote sensing for monitoring natural hazards related to climate change. She was a contractor for the United Nations for Training and Research (UNITAR) supporting the UNOSAT in Disaster Risk Reduction/Management, did PostDocs hosted by ECSAT in Harwell, UK and Eurac Research in Bolzano, Italy after receiving her PhD at the University of Strasbourg, France.
Her research project is complementing the current analyses -to be- done in the E-TEST (Interreg project Einstein Telescope EMR Site & Technology) area affected by seismicity and meteorological changes. Its main goals are the following:
Indeed, karst phenomena strongly control the extent of construction in the target area – at least in the limestone regions; therefore, a major objective of this project is to detect of limestone and related karstification, especially along faults.
