Anna Barra holds a Master Degree in “Geology Applied to Engineering, Land Use Planning and Risks” from Sapienza University of Rome (2013). She has been specializing in remote sensing techniques and GIS- based approaches applied to landslides mapping, detection and susceptibility analysis (both statistical and heuristic). Starting by her master thesis work, after a period of staying in Canada and Brazil (supported by a scholarship), she carried out a landslide susceptibility analysis by comparing and integrating Random Forest and Logistic Regression methods, applied to a disastrous event occurred in January 2011 in Nova Friburgo (Rio de Janeiro, Brasil). Then she collaborate for one year (2014) with the Earth Science Department, Sapienza University, on a project for the Province of Rome focused on a geodatabase implementation and on landslide susceptibility studies. She is now a visiting researcher at the Remote Sensing Department of the CTTC (holding a 9 months scholarship granted by University of Rome Sapienza). Her research here is focused on the use of RADAR techniques to detect and study landslides, in particular she is working on an area of Italy (Molise region), by processing and analyzing Sentinel-1 Satellite Radar Images.
