Ana Rivera MSc

San Jose State University
Graduate Student
San Jose, CA
Ana Lucrecia is a student of the Geography graduate program at San Jose State University where she applies geospatial technology to conduct research on urban heat islands. She has been using Geographic Information Systems to conduct research on urban planning topics since she was an architecture student in Mexico. Her thesis project proposed an urban regeneration based on a GIS analysis. Still, she felt that her profession was missing a true environmental knowledge and decided to study an M Sc. in Environmental Systems. There she applied Geo-information systems and remote sensing to pursue research on Urban Heat Islands. She is passionate about urban planning topics and the power of Geo-Information Systems and Remote Sensing to assess the impact of cities on the environment, vulnerability assessments of human settlements, flood risk analysis, public policies and urban poverty.
