Prof. Pereira holds a PhD in Physical Geography from the University of Barcelona focused on fire impacts on ash properties. In this PhD the studied variables were modelled and mapped. He has previous experience working on spatial modelling of environmental variables and applying these results to sustainable landscape planning. Prof. Pereira was awarded the outstanding young scientist award from the Soil System Sciences Division (European Geoscience Union) and he is Editor and Guest Editor of prestigious journals in the field of environment and soil science (Land Degradation and Development, Science of the Total Environment, Geoderma, Catena and Journal of Soils and Sediments).
